Visit from Minister Friedrich, Minister for the Bundesrat, Europe and International Affairs of the state of Baden-Württemberg

To build on the already strong partnership between Ontario and Baden-Württemberg, Minister Friedrich, Minister for the Bundesrat, Europe and International Affairs of the state of Baden-Württemberg and Dr. Peter Kulitz, President of the Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry Baden-Württemberg visited Toronto at the end of October. Next to meetings with Ontario Ministers and a visit to Voith Hydro, their program included a round table discussion hosted by CGCIC. We were pleased to welcome local experts, among others our Board Member Thomas Lichtenberger, to talk to the guests from Germany. Topics of the lively discussion were renewable energy in Ontario and Baden-Württemberg as well as success stories of Baden-Württemberg companies in Ontario.
