German Ambassador to Seoul Hans-Ulrich Seidt threw a reception at his Seongbuk-dong residence in Seoul for the visiting Hamburg business delegation on June 4, 2012.

The over 30 members of the German delegation was headed by Minister Frank Horch of Ministry of Economy, Transport, and Innovation of the Free Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

The other members included trade officials, top CEOs, maritime officials, green technology experts, and energy and logistics officials.

Other German and local Korean businesspeople in Seoul were invited to the dinner reception.

They included President Michael Hennig of KIECO (Korea Illies Engineering Co.), General Manager Uwe Glunz of Lufthansa Cargo, Chief Representative Pieter Wasmuth of Vatenfall, and President Hermann Kaess of Bosch.

Minister Horch and other delegates arrived in South Korea from Japan June 2, 2012.

Their visit to the nation is part of their tour to three East Asian countries including Japan and China.

They will leave Seoul for China on June 6, 2012 before they head to Hamburg.

In a speech Minister Horch stressed the need for more cooperation between Hamburg and South Korean counterparts in shipping, maritime, green technology, and other business areas.

He also emphasized the strategic and economic importance of the German port city.

"As Asia's gateway to Europe, Hamburg is Germany's second largest city, and it is also the second largest port city in northern Europe," he said.

He added that Hamburg is very strong for green technology, the renewable energy industry, and wind energy.

The senator also introduced Hamburg as a home for a number of regional and global companies' headquarters.

He said that he and other delegates visited Gwangju and other cities in South Korea.
