1st Malaysian-German Sustainable Automotive Mobility Conference
Kuala Lumpur, 18 October 2011
The target of the German Government in the field of climate change, green technologies and sustainable energies for the year 2050 is ambitious: Decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by 55%.
One of the means to reach this goal is the deployment of up to 6 million electrovehicles and the building of sustainable transport systems.
Climate change is no longer exclusively a scientific issue, but increasingly defines foreign policy, the various goals only achievable by joint efforts of governments, economy and science.
Selected German Embassies were therefore provided with Federal funds to organise events.
The project was realized by the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) as a bilateral conference, which took place at the Shangri-la Hotel on 18 October 2011.
Germany is the world leader in the automotive industry - the automobile’s 125th anniversary was proudly highlighted during the event - but is also known for the high and ever growing acceptance of sustainable systems in society.
German technology and its implementation in politics and governance is highly regarded worldwide.
The conference, organized as a panel event, brought together Geman industry (automotive industry, suppliers as well as German regional energy providers) and representatives of various Malaysian Ministries and the Malaysia Automotive Institute. It highlighted the interfaces between politics and industry and recalled the importance of considering urban development and smart grids in the process.
