Sino-German Automobile Industry Cooperates for Win-Win Results in “Two-Way Rush”

The 2023 Sino-German Automobile Conference with the theme of “Leading, Innovation and Transcendence” was recently held in Changchun, China. Government officials from China and Germany, as well as representatives from the automotive industry and academia, gathered to discuss the transformation and development of the global automotive industry and new opportunities for Sino-German automotive industry cooperation.

Participants at the conference highlighted that cooperation in the automobile industry serves as a model and benchmark for Sino-German economic collaboration. As the global automobile industry undergoes a rapid transformation, the two countries’ automobile industries are strengthening their cooperation to achieve win-win results and provide robust support for the development of the global automotive industry.

During the conference, Ge Ruohai, Minister of the German Embassy in China, emphasized Germany’s commitment to actively developing cooperation with the Chinese automobile industry.
