CeBIT America
Launched in New York

  TWIG - German minister of education and research Edelgard Bulmahn was in New York Tuesday (June 17) to inaugurate CeBIT America, the first stateside offshoot of the Hannover-based high-tech trade fair, CeBIT. Roughly 20,000 visitors and 1,000 journalists from 35 countries were expected to attend the spin-off of the world’s largest high-tech trade fair. CeBIT America presents new product solutions from the areas of information and telecommunications technology, network technology, software and services. In opening the trade fair, Bulmahn called on American firms to invest in Germany, citing the size of the German market and the low corporate taxes the country offers.

Addressing an audience of 200 executives and political leaders, Bulmahn said: "Hardly any other branch is as internationally oriented as the IT sector. The seal of quality ‘Made in Germany’ is making Germany a market leader in many key industries. This is due to Germany’s high standards of education and training, its good infrastructure and the intensive cooperation between its industry, science and research. It is in Germany that the decision is made as to which type of technology will determine the European market."

Bulmahn is also patron of "Future Parc," a forum for researchers, entrepreneurs and investors to showcase their innovative solutions to the world and to ensure the transfer of results of applied IT research to production and to the market. Future Parc was launched at last year’s CeBIT Hannover in Germany. In New York, the forum was represented by the German Pavilion for Research and Technology, where leading German research institutions, universities and their spin-offs presented innovative IT projects and products. The pavilion is a joint initiative on the part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and Deutsche Messe AG.
