Peter Tichauer first came to study in China in 1984 for one year. In 2006, he settled down in China and has since been working at the Qingdao Sino-German Ecopark in Shandong province.
The Qingdao Sino-German Ecopark is the first sustainable development demonstration cooperation project jointly built by the Chinese and German governments. Located in the Qingdao West Coast New Area, the Ecopark is a model of green urbanization, focusing on green, ecological and sustainable development.
In Peter's view, the Ecopark is not only an industrial park, but also a community for companies. One of his responsibilities is to publish German magazines to introduce local investment advantages and Chinese economic development trends to entrepreneurs, so as to attract more foreign companies to invest in China and reach cooperation.
"This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Federal Republic of Germany and the People's Republic of China," Peter said, adding that the economic cooperation between the two countries has made great achievements. As a witness to and participant in Sino-German economic cooperation, he hopes that the two countries will expand cooperation in more areas in the future.
