Representatives of the German Chambers in ASEAN presented the region's growth prospects on occasion of the first direct flights between DUS and SG.

Dr. Gerhard Eschenbaum of IHK Düsseldorf discussed the ASEAN economy with Dr. Monika Stärk of AHK Myanmar, Peter Kompalla of GPCCI, Margit Kunz of AHK Singapore, Dr. Roland Wein of AHK Thailand, and Marko Walde of AHK Vietnam.

The Chamber representatives gave first-hand accounts of recent economic trends and developments in Southeast Asia, such as the increasing international integration through free trade agreements. They also gave valuable tips on market entry options for German companies, and described the opportunities and challenges of business expansion in this highly dynamic region.

The event “Wachstumsmarkt ASEAN” was organized by IHK Düsseldorf and Düsseldorf Airport in cooperation with the German ASEAN Business Council (GABC), an association of seven German Chambers Abroad (AHKs) in the ASEAN countries.

Singapore Airlines will offer regular direct flights between Singapore and Düsseldorf starting 1 July 2016.
