Since 2015, EA Systems Dresden has been pursuing the goal of marketing their own smart solutions in China. This includes the development of solutions as well as pilot projects in cooperation with Chinese engineers, cities and companies. Within the scope of B2B talks René Unger, Torsten Schwan and Ralf Schiefendecker have already been to China several times and met with representatives for conferences and meetings. Most recently, Mr. Unger was invited by the Dong Fang Yi Group in Beijing in August 2019 to participate in B2B talks with the aim of concluding an LOI for the joint development of pilot projects in China.
Unfortunately, the issue has been postponed because of the current corona pandemic, which has forced a halt to negotiations.
In 2018, EA Systems Dresden had already had a market development concept drawn up by CECC Berlin in order to push forward the acquisition in the Asian region using the case study of China. All measures were based on this concept. In general, the “China acquisition” continues to play an important role and will be pursued further. For the time being, however, the invested resources have been scaled back and the effort reduced, as the practical implementation is proving difficult in the times of Corona.
