On behalf of the vbw (Bavarian Industry Association) Prognos examined the development of the economic exchange relations of Bavaria and Germany as a whole, with China: These have intensified increasingly over many years in terms of both trade and direct investment.
A closer examination shows that Chinese investors in Germany and Bavaria, are above all interested in participation in or the takeover of companies located in industry sectors where Germany and Bavaria are technological leaders. Specifically, these include the fields of mechanical engineering, the automotive industry, information and communication technology, as well as chemistry and pharmaceuticals. A large proportion of foreign direct investment in Germany thus goes to the key industries defined in the "Made in China 2025" strategy (MIC 2025).
