We are delighted to announce that the 5th Sino-German Controlling Forum will take place on September 8th, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in Suzhou.

Excellent controlling capacities and qualified controlling personnel are key factors for a company’s success especially in China. While operations in China are becoming increasingly complex and competition is intensifying, there is a shortage of qualified controllers as well as a lack of knowledge of professional controlling practices.
