Expandeers Global Convention Dubai 2019

What a great experience: This years' Global Partners Meeting of Expandeers took place in in Dubai for four full days. Over 25 partners from more than 12 nations gathered in Dubai, discussing options, opportunities, new strategies, Expandeers growth path, new ideas and business models. This year, focus was on sustainability. Making crude oil efficiently from recycled plastic (Thailand), recovering mobile phones after water contact (Mexico) that reduces electronic waste, Freshpacks that preserve food more effectively and thus reducing food waste and plastic usage (Mexico), a Laser technology for measuring profiles of tires so they last longer and take less time to check are just few of the opportunities. These were presented, discussed and planned for global market entrance. The two day workshop was also offering many 1:1 exchanges about bilateral import/export from and to around the world. 

The meetings took place in conference venues of Shangri-La and Voco Hotel alongside Sheik Zayed Road in Downtown / Financial District of Dubai. Beside the work meetings, quite a bit of time had been reserved for socializing and networking, once again focussing on the core assets of Expandeers, i.e. personal exchange and contact for doing reliable and trustworthy business together. Welcome Dinner and cocktails at "La Mer" at the beach, a guided city tour, networking dinner in Bur Dubai, the old part of the city, followed by cocktails and live DJ in a scenic rooftop bar on 43rd floor and many other relaxing activities formed the frame for a great Arabic happening.


Presently we already started planning our next years' event, taking place in September 2020, presumably in Istanbul / Turkey.

German Malaysian Round Table 04.12.19 in Hamburg


Dear Friends of GMRT, 

sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,


es ist uns eine große Freude und Ehre, Sie zum 3. Hamburger German Malaysian Round Table (GMRT) am Mittwoch, den 4. Dezember 2019 um 14:00 Uhr, bei der Rödl Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft Steuerberatungsgesellschaft mbH, Kehrwieder 9, 20457 Hamburg, einladen zu dürfen. 

Die südostasiatische Staatengemeinschaft ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) gewinnt als regionale Standortalternative oder -ergänzung zu China und Indien für europäische Unternehmen zunehmend an Bedeutung. ASEAN hat mittlerweile mehrere Freihandelsabkommen abgeschlossen, u.a. mit China und Indien. Die EU verhandelt derzeit bilaterale Abkommen mit einzelnen Mitgliedsstaaten; Malaysia hat bereits frühzeitig die Weichen für internationale Wirtschaftsbeziehungen gestellt und war im Jahr 1967 eines der 6 ASEAN-Gründungsmitglieder. Ferner unterhält Malaysia mit mehr als 70 Ländern Doppelbesteuerungsabkommen ─ mit Deutschland bereits seit dem Jahr 1979. Seit 1995 ist Malaysia auch Mitglied der WTO. Durch die günstigen Arbeitsbedingungen und die vorteilhafte geografische Lage, etablierte sich Malaysia als idealer Produktionsstandort, u.a. in der Schiffstechnik mit ca. 120 Werften oder auch der Elektrobranche, in der Malaysia weltweit führend in der Mikrochip- und Solarzellenproduktion ist.


Während der Veranstaltung werden Sie die Gelegenheit haben, sich ein aktuelles Bild über die Marktsituation und Zugangsvoraussetzungen zu machen. Außerdem haben Sie die Möglichkeit mit Unternehmern und Wirtschafts-/ Rechts-Experten für die Region Süd-Ost Asien zu sprechen. Ein Veranstaltungsprogramm wird Ihnen während der nächsten Wochen zugesandt. 


Die Teilnahme an der kostenfreien Veranstaltung, erfordert eine vorherige verbindliche Anmeldung. Bitte melden Sie sich bis spätestens Donnerstag, 28.November 2019, per E-Mail hamburg@gmrt.de an. Aufgrund der begrenzten Verfügbarkeit von Plätzen werden die akzeptierten Anmeldungen schriftlich bestätigt. 


Wir freuen uns auf eine lebhafte Diskussion und einen intensiven Erfahrungsaustausch mit Ihnen!

German-Russian Round Table 2019 - A recap

Expandeers German Russian Round Table in Hamburg

On June 3, 2019, the Expandeers' German-Russian Round Table in Hamburg took place on the premises of Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH. The 30 participants got a detailed overview with speeches on the current economic situation in Russia, insights in effective law enforcement and securing foreign investment and what to take in consideration when expanding into Russia.

The Russian market is still rather stable and the bilateral trade between German and Russia amounted to 65 billion USD in 2018. That however still means a lower level than before sanctions kicked in, where trade volume equalled 75 billion USD (2013). Problems of the Russian markets are in majority of political nature, to a lesser extend economically. In his key note General Consul Sharashkin pointed out that Russia is not to be seen as a country but as a continent: On federal level different instruments as special investment contracts can be obtained and decisions are taken quite fast on regional level. But for state tenders and public contracts a company must be registered as a Russian company. For example Klaas and Daimler are treated as Russian companies. Production in Russia for Daimler starts this year. Also he emphasized that although sometimes very hurtful and some business partners are unpredictable, sanctions can also be an opportunity. The Russians deal with European sanctions by either finding new substitutes, e.g. from China, making up with own resources or letting European companies setting up their own subsidiaries in Russia, so sanctions are not working at all. In the eyes of Mr. Sharashkin, sanctions primarily harm the German SME that used to work on the Russian markets. The lecture about positive experiences but also challenges that were faced (Meesenburg Gruppe Flensburg) demonstrated other aspects, e.g. if a Russian business partner reports insolvency it is very unlikely to get paid or that being too successful in Russia can result in a reduced margin over all.

After running a hundred inmersion tests, as well as tests in a climate chamber, Camen concluded that, in water related accidents, Dr. Dry was capable of preventing corrosion in electronic microcircuits when the device was highly saturated with water, therefore rescuing most devices with an 82% success rate (In controlled conditions).


The study determined that when the device did not fully recover, the main causes of the malfuction were: the device was dropped in other liquid different from water, the time prior to using Dr. Dry exceeded 48 hr and the device was inmersed for a period of time longer than 10 minutes.

France as a vital business partner

Expandeers France


In recent months, articles and news captures about yellow-vest movements dominated newspapers all over the world when France was concerned, leaving a picture of instability and violence dominating in France.


More specifically, it identifies the national response of our neighbor to a necessary reform of the economic and social systems with the aim of strengthening France nationally and making it internationally competitive and thus attractive to foreign investors.

Yellow Vests in France

The state of the nation

The German entrepreneur associates France with the 35-hour week, a maximum employment protection and a retirement at age of 62 years, with high non-wage labour costs and a not entrepreneur-friendly tax legislation. To align these privileges of the French with the level of European neighbors is the aim of the package of measures implemented by Emmanuel Macron since the beginning of his term of office. It is understandable that this meets with only little sympathy of their own people.


These reforms, which have earned Macron the reputation of the "President of the Rich," show clear successes in the economy. In 2018, after stagnating for a long time, economic growth has risen to 2%, with a forecast of 2.3% in 2019. Unemployment has recovered from 10.7% to 8.7% within three years. Reforms in the French tax law such as the abolition of wealth tax (except for Real Estate) and the reduction of corporation tax from 33.33% gradually to 25% by 2022 contributed to this. To relieve the middle class, Macron announced in late April a significant reduction in income tax. The Labour law has been made more entrepreneur-friendly, e.g. through extended termination possibilities or restrictions on the level of compensation to pay for unfair dismissals. Work councils are not mandatory anymore in companies with minimum 50 but only from 100 employees. The adjustment of the retirement age to 64 years and an increase in weekly working hours are central reform issues of Macron; due to resistance from the yellow-vest movement decisions were postponed to the summer.

Deutsch-Russischer Round Table in Hamburg am 3. Juni 2019

Einladung zum Deutsch-Russischen Round Table, Hamburg


Es ist uns eine große Freude und Ehre, Sie zum Deutsch-Russischen Round Table am Dienstag, dem 3. Juni 2019 um 13:00 Uhr im Hause der Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, Gänsemarkt 45, 20345 Hamburg, einzuladen. 

Nachdem sich die deutsch-russischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen seit 20 Jahren positiv entwickelten, gibt es seit 2012 einen spürbaren Einbruch, basierend auf der allgemeinen russischen Wirtschaftskrise, dem Ölpreisverfall und der Rubelschwäche, verstärkt durch die Sanktionsregime der EU und Russlands anlässlich der Ukraine-Krise. Russland hat sich inzwischen hierauf eingestellt, fördert die Produktion im eigenen Land und sucht nach neuen Geschäftspartnern und Lieferanten. Deutsche Unternehmer sind nach wie vor beliebte, wenn nicht die begehrtesten Partner. Russland hat zahlreiche Anreize für ausländische Unternehmen geschaffen, in Russland wirtschaftlich tätig zu werden oder ihr Geschäftsfeld zu erweitern. Trotz aller Schwierigkeiten wächst die russische Wirtschaft weiter; der Handel mit Deutschland steigt seit 2017 wieder.

Was das für Sie und Ihr Unternehmen bedeutet, wollen wir mit kompetenten russischen und deutschen Referenten mit Ihnen diskutieren.


Die Teilnahme an der Veranstaltung ist kostenlos, erfordert aber eine vorherige verbindliche Anmeldung. Bitte melden Sie sich unter Angabe Ihres Namens und der Firma bis spätestens Donnerstag, dem 23. Mai 2019 per Email an  anksana@expandeers.com an. Aufgrund der begrenzten Verfügbarkeit von Plätzen werden wir die akzeptierten Anmeldungen schriftlich bestätigen. 


In der Pause und im Anschluss gibt es die Möglichkeit, neue Geschäftskontakte zu knüpfen und sich über Ihre Erfahrungen im Russlandgeschäft auszutauschen. Wir freuen uns auf einen intensiven Erfahrungsaustausch und eine lebhafte Diskussion mit Ihnen!


Mit freundlichen Grüßen


Gerrit Stroomann                                                     Dr. Gabriele Kötschau                                           Anna Bashkova, LL.M.
