Around 400 German companies are active in Ukraine. Now they're finally served by a German-Ukrainian Chamber of Foreign Trade.
The Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business is due to be held in Jakarta next month. DW spoke with the head of the German Chambers of Commerce in Indonesia, Jan Rönnfeld, about the country's economic situation.
In the first half of 2018, German trade remained on a solid growth path. But is stagnation in July a first foreboding of a slowdown caused by mounting concern over US President Donald Trump's trade measures?
The German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) has warned that should the Trump administration go ahead and impose higher tariffs on steel imports this would could trigger a global trade war.
The EU, China and Japan have decried the Trump administration's idea to also heap US tariffs on imported vehicles - on top of steel and aluminum. Washington's "national security" argument is "far-fetched," says Brussels.
