Jens Hildebrandt, Head of the AHK in Beijing

Jens Hildebrandt, 43, has dedicated his professional life to one question: How can German companies be successful in China? He became interested in this while studying sinology and politics in Leipzig, Beijing, and Hong Kong. Since 2007, he has been active in the network of German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHK).
