Visit the Fenestration in Peking
Yu Zhang and Walter Gurtner recently visited the most important trade fair for windows and facades in Beijing. Thedevelopment is stunning since our first visit four years ago. The speed with which the metal industry adapts ourlevel incredibly. Many things that we have addressed together with our Chinese partners have alreadyimplemented other today. We have learned that we need to take very different demands on the speed for the Chinese market, as we are used to in Europe.
Yu Zhang has promoted many visits to companies and the expansion of our network for this week in China, so wehave got new ideas and business opportunities at homeward journey. Of course, the construction site in Beijingwas visited which we will install Schüco innovations soon that we have not even built in the Germany until now! In China, the clocks tick just different!
Beijing was preparing for the APEC summit and the capital presented itself in glorious sunshine and almostdeserted streets. Because they did not want to stifle the smog for the Asia Pacific summit, the government has ordered to close all factories in Beijing and the surrounding area for 10 days and no exhaust gases before and cause during the summit. In order to ensure a smooth traffic flow, all administrations were occupied with a 6-day special holiday. So that we did not have any traffic in Beijing.
China gets to be on the way to the greatest economic power on earth! No matter what happens, we should try to be there at this ascent, because the contacts of today will be important in 10 years for a role in our industry. We must be very excited!
