New Representative at Hamburg’s Chinese Liaison OfficeThere was a change of responsibility at the Port of Hamburg Marketing Representative Office in Shanghai. The previous manager, Lars Anke left the Office at his own request to dedicate himself to a new challenge in Hamburg’s port economy.
From this point in time the new head is the previous deputy of the Representative Office Pan Hua. The position as deputy head has been taken on by Michael Wunderlich. Having studied Chinese, this China scholar has, in the past, already been active in business in China and Shanghai.
Axel Mattern, Co CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing, is very pleased about the smooth transition: We naturally regret that Lars Anke, who has given valuable service to the Port of Hamburg for more than twelve years in Shanghai and China generally, has now decided to make a change in his career. With Pan Hua a colleague has taken over the Shanghai office, who has years of experience and excellent contacts. In her new function, Pan Hua will ensure the continuity of our work on the spot and going forward be available as contact person for all of our partners, members and customers. With Michael Wunderlich, we have signed on a China ‘insider’‚ who will excellently complement the Representative Office team. The ongoing intensive handling of the Chinese market continues to be of great importance for the Port of Hamburg that, with regard to the development of the Belt and Road Initiative, may well increase further.”
The Port of Hamburg Representative Office in China is embedded in the Hamburg Liaison Office China - HLO, which is carried by the Hamburg state government, Hamburg Marketing, Hamburg Invest, Hamburg Tourism, the Chamber of Commerce and Port of Hamburg Marketing. In addition to Shanghai, HLO also represents these organisations through its additional office in Beijing.
