Welcoming Address Dagmar Schmidt - Member of the German Parliament -Chairman of the German-Chinese Parliamentary Group of the German Parliament
The SinoJobs Career Days will be held for the 10th time this year, and for the first time online.
Especially during these challenging times, with all economic and political conflicts, it is important that the exchange and contact between Germany and the People’s Republic of China stay strong.
To keep up a functioning economic cooperation, it is essential to not only maintain economic relationships. The basis for a successful cooperation is the cultural, historical, and personal exchange and the mutual familiarity and understanding. A big part of this learning process is the exchange between students. Again, the Chinese students make up the largest group of foreign exchange students in Germany. Also, the number of German students in China is rising every year.
This is why it is very exciting, when this exchange continues and develops into the professional life. I therefore very much encourage young people from Germany and China, to take this special and unique opportunity.
As the chairman of the German-Chinese Parliament Group, I hope that the SinoJobs Career Days will be successful and wish much success to all participants for their future.
Member of the German Bundestag
