From 11 to 17 December 2016 the Internationaler Bund (IB) in cooperation with its partner Tinc International invited an alliance of entrepreneurs from Shenzhen region for a management training and investment seminar in Frankfurt and Mannheim. For a long time, Shenzhen had the reputation to be the workbench of the world. The region is facing the challenge of modernizing the existing infrastructure and to connect with the industrialized countries of the western world. Therefore, it is the intention of the seminar to give an intercultural understanding of rules and business culture in Europe and to connect the participants with the European industry. The IB and its subsidiary, the Hochschule der Wirtschaft und Management (HdWM), in cooperation with its partner Tinc are considering a long-term partnership perspective with the Shenzhen region.
