Business Trip to Regensburg and Council Meeting

19.05.2016

The German-Irish Chamber would like to follow you up on our business trip to Regensburg which took place from 12-14 May 2016. It contained our Council Meeting and the main highlights in the Regensburg area, plenty of opportunities to network, mingle and bond with key decision makers while enjoying the hospitality of the German people.

This year, Regensburg was the venue for the annual Chamber Business Trip.  A delegation of members and Chamber council members left Dublin Airport on 12th May for a three-day visit to the capital of the Bavarian administrative region Upper Palatinate. The medieval centre of Regensburg city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the trip provided opportunities for sight-seeing and business in equal measure.  

As well as visiting the famous tourist location of Regensburg Cathedral, which is the prime example of Gothic architecture in Bavaria, the German-Irish Chamber held informal talks with the local Regensburg Chamber for Industry and Commerce.  Regensburg has a dynamic and fast-growing economy and these talks allowed members of the German-Irish Chamber to explore potential business opportunities.

 

The German-Irish delegation undertook a company site visit to Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen. They also travelled east of Regensburg to visit the world famous Walhalla and met German member of parliament Philipp Graf von und zu Lerchenfeld, during their stay. “The exchange of knowledge with the participants of the business trip was really important to me, especially regarding topics like the future development of the EU and international taxation. I believe the only way we can face Europe’s challenges is by working closely together”, he stated.
