With his profound first-hand knowledge Frank Sieren has become a speaker in high demand at company functions and seminars. His areas of expertise include:

China – A giant is awaking
China’s influence on the world has increased dramatically. The rising global power is curbing economic growth in the Western world; it co-determines the extent of the US economic crisis; and it pushes the oil price as well as the value of the Euro. Hard-hitting, China seeks power in Africa, in the Middle East, and Central Asia. Is our economic prosperity under threat? Do we have to face a new form of colonialism? Will the oil price rise to 200 US dollar?

We have become used to certain characters of globalization, for example that we no longer manufacture many of our own products but have them assembled in individual pieces all over the world. Developments in distant regions have suddenly become important to us. Changes caused by globalization are therefore profound. Since era of colonialism the West has been in the position to dictate global rules. But the situation has changed. With the economic rise of China Western dominance is fading. Developing countries, whose natural resources we are courting now can choose whom to do business with. This strengthens self confidence. Western values are challenged; spheres of political influence are renegotiated.

Never before in human history were so many people lifted out of poverty as by the economic rise of China during the last 25 years. But also never before, so much of the environment has been destroyed. Cancer caused by environmental pollution is the no. 1 cause of death. Less clean air, little clean water, acid rain all over Eastern Asia, fine dust in Los Angeles. As soon as in 2010, China will produce more greenhouse gases than the USA. Western environmental policy will achieve little without China’s close collaboration. Slowly, the Chinese government is waking up. Will China become the pioneer in setting environmental standards, simply because it is forced to? Will China begin to use our environmental technologies and turn them into common mass products? Or is it already too late for the environment?

The China Code - How the Booming Middle Kingdom is Changing Germany
China is booming. The rising power is already setting global standards, from which we cannot elude ourselves. Along with its economic significance grows the political and cultural power of China. What has caused this rapid rise? How does China change Germany? Is China swallowing our jobs? Will it build our machines in the future?
