Bw-i in Nanjing
Bw-i has a representative office and a service company (Limited) in Nanjing. Both the representative office and the service company are housed in the same office and they work hand in hand. While representative office mainly represents the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, the service company offers services for companies from Baden-Württemberg. The functions of the chief representative and the general manager are carried out by Mr. Henning Vogelsang. The joint office combines both functions under one roof and ensures cooperation. We see ourselves as a general point of contact for companies that would like to become active in China and are very glad to provide help and advice.
The support for companies from Baden-Württemberg in China can be provided in a variety of ways, for example through the recommendation of Chinese cooperation partners and Chinese personnel, or by organizing trade fair appearances. Medium-sized companies from Baden-Württemberg can become active on the Chinese market with the help of the employees of our Company Pool, without having to set up their own branch office. A complete overview of our services can be found under “Services” on this website.
