EDITORIAL Unforeseen

EDITORIAL Unforeseen incidents and new impetus Dear reader, Economic growth in China has not been this low since the financial crisis seven years ago. Forecasts for 2016 only estimate a rise of just 6.7 %, although figures do seem to indicate that the situation is stabilizing. It is being reported that especially industrial production but also the retail sector will see unexpected strong increases. The International Monetary Fund has indentified signs that things are stabilizing and has slightly increased its growth prognosis for China. So are things really looking a little rosier for Chinese business? If we take Germany as an example, German machine manufacturers were able to increase global exports in 2015. However, according to the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) the positive results were clearly achieved on the other side of the pond. The USA thus replaced China as the largest foreign sales market for Germany. We will have to wait and see how long this will remain the case, as the Chinese government will, in its own interest, to try to stimulate the economy again. However, this will not suffice. The Chinese economy will have to change at the same time. Only the trend that is shifting away from quantitative towards qualitative growth is simultaneously offering companies new opportunities, providing benefits for everyone. You can also take advantage of our current content and topics: In this issue, we have amongst other things, focused on automation in China and the industrial automation trade fairs in Beijing (May 11-13, 2016) and Shenzhen (June 29 to July 1, 2016). It also includes many excellent technical innovations that could help you with your everyday work and support you to carry out tasks – not just in China but around the world. Let yourself be inspired. Would you like to become a regular reader? Subscribe for free at www.ate-magazine.com. We look forward to it! Editor-in-chief: Dipl.-Ing.
