Ambassadors Dialogue Asia-Pacific

For the first time, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry for Rhinehessen and Pfalz, together with the Ministry of Economics, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of Rhineland-Palatinate, the OAV – German Asia-Pacific Association invites to the Asia-Pacific Ambassadors Dialogue.

The main objective of this event is not only to inform interested companies about the economic potentials of the Asia-Pacific region, but also to create a platform for exchange between family businesses and global players with the most important expert for your country. Therefore, we would appreciate if you could also be present for bilateral discussions at bar tables for each country ambassador with the participants after the program in a designated area.

In the heart of Europe, surrounded by the neighboring countries of France, Luxembourg and Belgium, Rhineland-Palatinate has established itself as an internationally successful, future-oriented business location. The dense road network and excellent connections to Frankfurt Airport guarantee fast accessibility in all directions. In addition, Rhineland-Palatinate's economy occupies a top position in Germany with an export ratio of 56 percent.
