On Friday 17th April 2015, Paul Jolley Managing Director of HGR Technology was invited to the first Foreign General Managers Annual Meeting and High Profile Forum. This event was held in the Zhongshan High-tech Zone and the event was organised by the Zhongshan Torch Hi-Tech Zone Government and Cuiheng New District Government, and was co-organized by Star Prototype.
We at HGR Technology are very proud to be part of the first Zhongshan Foreign General Managers Annual Meeting and High Profile Forum. We are very proud of our home town Zhongshan, and strive to make it a better place for foreigners to live, work and invest.
The forum discussed the challenges and opportunities of the economic development of Zhongshan and company management under the ‘new normal’. The forum was very informative and allowed us as General Managers within Zhongshan to network, exchange ideas and experiences and improve better communication and cooperation.
Several General Managers were kind enough to provide us with interesting and informative speeches about their companies and experiences doing business in China and Zhongshan. They included: Mr. Gordon Styles, President of Star Prototype, Ms. Lydia Liu, Vice Director of Investment Promotion Office of Zhongshan High-tech Zone; Mr. Rene Foster, Chairman of SwissCham Guangzhou/General Manager of Howag-Swisspur; Mr. Gerd Kaarow, Member of the Board of the German Industry & Commerce Guangzhou/General Manager Greater China of METZ CONNECT; Mr. Said Nakhla, Chief Safety Expert of the American Auto Industry Engineers Association/General Manager Greater China Office RECARO; Mr. Reinhard Betschart, General Manager of SSM Zhongshan; Mr. Jonathan Ross, CEO of Star Prototype; Mr. Zhang Zhou, General Manager of Satisloh Zhongshan and Danyang; and Mr. Patrick Liu, Managing Director of ThyssenKrupp Escalator China.
We also heard from two Chinese government leaders at the municipal level, Mr. Hou Yibin of the Standing Committee of the Zhongshan Municipal Party’s Committee and Mr. Zhang Jiahua, Chief Planner of the Zhongshan High-Tech Zone Government.
Other General Managers who were in attendance and listened with interest plus also shared their own experiences included: Mr. Paul Jolley, Managing Director of HGR Technology, Mr. Raymond Wong, Managing Director of ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems Zhongshan, Mr. Paul Gerny, General Manager of Image F&B, Mr. Freddie Wiemer, Managing Director of Pelletino-Moda Pelle, Mr. Cengiz Dana, General Manager of Goldreal and Ms. Antonitta Mankuzou from ThyssenKrupp, Mr. Chris Williams and Mr. David Dorrigotti from Star Prototype
