three-decade cooperation between China and Germany has produced numerous
eye-catching findings in a string of fields, including environment, ecology, earth science,
marine study, aeronautics, protection of cultural relics, optic technologies, micro-systems,
information technology, and health. In recent years, climate change, energy, and

a new historical period. Dr. Annette Schavan, Federal Minister of Education and Research,
