On tuesday the 8th of January the Lower Rhine IHK (Niederrheinische IHK) held it’s New Year’s reception in Duisburg. Central Headpoints were the Energy transition, climate protection, digitization and demography.
Another aspekt was the infrasturcture in and around the Ruhr area. The low water level of the Rhine showed how sensitive the delivery routs are. With that the Lower Rhine IHK starts with big challanges into the new year.
“The Tour de France bid is an important signal for the sport city of Düsseldorf, and the right one. As a city of sport, cosmopolitan and financially strong Düsseldorf must stake its claim as a metropolis that has to be taken seriously in international competition for world-class sporting events.
I reported on my impressions of the Olympic capital Rio de Janeiro from 11 to 19 August.
Following Hamburg’s failed Olympics bid, by staging the Tour de France in Düsseldorf, Germany has once again returned to the international sports stage. Düsseldorf and the entire region will provide an enthusiastic backdrop for athletes from all over the world.”Christina Begale
