Chinese Minister of Economy on Visit

On June 21, 2019, the Aspens company received the Minister of Economy of the Chinese province of Shanxi, Mr. Jinping Li.

The Minister arrived accompanied by the Managing Director of the Chinese chemical company LuAn. The reception took place at the company Aspens, which has its headquarters in the Medical Park Hannover. Together with the Chinese group LuAn, the company Aspens wants to enable innovative products for hydrogen electromobility as well as the use of high-purity hydrogen for medical technology. For this reason, another reception was held that day at the Ministry of Economics of Lower Saxony, where the cooperation between Germany and China and in particular between Lower Saxony and the Chinese region of Shanxi was discussed.

The exchange took place between the Chinese Minister of Economy Jinping Li and our State Secretary Dr. Berend Lindener at the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economy, Labor, Transport and Digitalization. Dr. Lindner presented Lower Saxony’s projects in the field of renewable energies and in particular the projects involving the production and use of hydrogen to reduce greenhouse gases. Both politicians underlined that a close cooperation would strengthen the economy of both countries. China and Germany have the same common goals for the energy transition, they said. Dr. Lindner and the city of Hanover subsequently assured Aspens of further support.
