A multi-faceted metropolis spanning 700 km²

In terms of area, Singapore is the smallest state in Southeast Asia. With one main island, three
larger and 58 small offshore islands, the city-state off the Malay Peninsula covers an area
of just 719 km².

Logistics turned upside down

Cellumation’s goal is ambitious … at some point in the future, every package delivered across the globe will have come into contact with one of the high-tech company’s cells by means of smart conveyor technology, an innovation for which the Bremen-based start-up has already won a series of awards and attracted significant investors.

The man in charge of the port

Upon leaving his role as a captain at Hapag-Lloyd in May of this year, Stephan Berger has swapped steering container ships with directing the fortunes of the ports in Bremen and Bremerhaven as the new head of the Bremen Port Authority, succeeding the retired Andreas Mai.

“Quarantine is taken seriously here – it’s not just a friendly recommendation!”

From the Southeast Asian city-state, the Harren & Partner expert reports on everyday working life since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, future discussions on the topic of decarbonisation and his professional destiny.

The hype around the hub

Singapore – living up to its title as the Lion’s City. The metropolis is also one of four major economies comprising the ‘Tiger States’ in Asia, marked by exponential economic growth in the second half of the twentieth century. It therefore comes as no surprise that the city-state is considered an apex player today – especially when it comes to finance and global trade of goods.

Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary have many things in common. They are not only export nations but are also important locations for the automotive and supplier industries too. By contrast, however, inland waterway transport in these countries tends to take second stage.

“A little flattery goes a long way”

“A little flattery goes a long way”

When taking a business trip to Singapore, you can expect an exciting melting pot of nationalities to accompany the international, state-of-the-art business sphere. This diversity is particularly challenging to navigate when finding a formula for success in dealings with business partners. One endeavour is paramount, however: mastering the fine balancing act between confidence and etiquette.

Don’t be surprised, Mrs Müllerova!

When doing business in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, a lot of small talk and the exchange of pleasantries are the order of the day. Only afterwards should business matters be discussed. In the Czech Republic, it can happen that Mrs Müller quickly becomes Mrs Müllerova.
