Interview
The new interview from "A HONG KONGER IN GERMANY"

More and more young Hong Kong citizens are interested in studying or starting a new career in Germany. Chiu Kit LAM went to Germany for a bachelor-degree program more than 10 years ago and has successfully started his career there. In our new interview, we ask him about the differences in the workplace culture between Germany and Hong Kong, job opportunities in the German job market, and what qualifications are particularly in demand there.
