The First Day in China

After a bit of trouble due to a cancelled flight, the Economic Mission that is headed by the Hereditary Grand Duke arrived late but safe in China. They were stuck in Munich for one night because their connecting flight to Hongkong couldn't take place due to technical problems. After getting a Lufthansa survival kit and spending the night in the airport's own five star hotel, the delegation arrived to Hongkong a day late and had to cancel their engagements in the Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. Instead they directly made their way to Shenzhen, a city not far from Hongkong.

In Shenzhen Guillaume, Luxembourg's Minister for Economy and Foreign Trade Jeannot Krecké and the rest of the delegation consisting of many Luxembourgish companies visited the headquarters of Huawei Technologies, the second largest supplier of mobile telecommunications infrastructure equipment in the world. They also visited BYD, a car manufacturer specialising in electrically powered cars; for more information about the very interesting topic please have a look at the Tageblatt article I have dutifully set on (ghetto-) English for you.

More pictures of the activities on day one of the Economic Mission to China can be found on the official website. The above mentioned article by Tageblatt has a picture as well.

Next stop on the Chinese journey will be Chongqing where the delegation will spend the next two days.
