German skills for growing cities – that is the motto of the third business forum on architecture, planning and construction, to be held at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin on 18 February 2014.
Federal Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will open the event.
Around the world, urban structures are growing at breathtaking speed. More than half of all people live in towns and cities. There are major challenges to the infrastructure of growing cities, as people need safe and affordable living space, proper transport routes, clean water and reliable energy supplies. Just as importantly, they also need jobs and leisure areas within reach.
This business forum is intended to promote collaboration by German companies abroad and encourage architects, engineers and the construction industry to work even more closely with Germany’s promoters of foreign trade and investment.
