The Minister President of the State of Brandenburg, Dr. Dietmar Woidke, in his function as current President of the Bundesrat, will travel to the USA, to Washington, D.C., and to California from 20-26 April 2020, together with the Brandenburg Minister of Economics, Labour and Energy, Prof. Dr. Jörg Steinbach.
In parallel, the Wirtschaftsförderung Land Brandenburg GmbH (WFBB) is organising an accompanying company delegation to California. In this context, there will be tailor-made business-to-business talks and company visits in California. In addition, there will be the opportunity to participate in individual dates of the supporting programme of the political delegation in California.
Target regions for the company delegation in California are the metropolises San Francisco and Los Angeles. Individual companies may also be able to travel to the Central Valley for meetings and visits.
The main focus of the trip will be on the following sectors:
- Industrial IT (Industry 4.0, Internet of Things)
- Media Management
- Telematics, assistance systems, autonomous driving
- digital solutions for shipping and logistics
- digital solutions for agriculture (AgTech)
In justified exceptional cases and if there is still room, representatives of other industries can also be included.
With the help of a subsidy applied for by the WFBB and from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the services are offered at no cost. The costs must be covered by the participants themselves, i.e. flight and hotel as well as meals on a self-pay basis.
