A look back at the series of events From Eastern France to Germany

Everything you always wanted to know about Germany! 

To mark its 35th anniversary, the World Trade Center Metz-Saarbrücken organized a series of "Germany-specific" information events at the beginning of April.

At the Franco-German Business Lunch on April 5, specialists from both countries discussed the cultural dimension of international business success. We were able to share a convivial moment by (re-)discovering Germany from a different angle over a "typisch deutsch" meal. To finish on a playful note, participants took part in a quiz on German business practices.

  • Antoine Chardin - CCFA
  • Rodolphe Hedouin - WPK
