Angela Merkel and Wen Jiabao visit HARTING stand

The Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel with Dietmar Harting, Philip Harting, Margrit Harting and Maresa Harting-Hertz.

The HARTING Technology Group welcomed German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao to its stand at the start of the Hannover Messe 2012.

China is the partner country of the annual Hannover Messe this year and a large Chinese delegation therefore accompanied the prominent visitors to the Espelkamp-based family company’s exhibition stand. Jiabao and Merkel found the time for the Harting family to inform them about the company, its international locations and its products. The visit of the Chinese Premier was a significant moment for HARTING’s many Chinese employees in particular. Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel previously visited HARTING’s exhibition stand at the Hannover Messe in 2008.
