Interview with Erich Kaiserseder, Board member of Shenyang Chapter & General Manager of Conrad Hotel Shenyang
My first experience in China was back in 1992 while working in Beijing. In the course of the past three decades, I accepted assignments within the rest of Asia and globally, but repeatedly returned to China on assignments as well. This allowed me to note the enormous progress China made almost as if through a timelapse.
Upon arrival in Shenyang and while preparing for the opening of the Conrad Hotel, I noticed that there are many European businesses located in and around the city. The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, Shenyang Chapter, founded 14 years ago, impressed me with the number and quality of events it hosted. I partook in one of the social events and last year’s launch of the Position Paper prior to joining the Chamber. After I observed the efficiency and professionalism of the Shenyang Chapter, I decided to become a member with our company.
I have since been honoured to become a board member of the Shenyang Chapter and the head of the focus group to improve the attractiveness and tourism of Shenyang. We have had several very positive and productive meetings with the local government since then, and it is remarkable to see the excellent cooperation between the local government and the Chamber.
