Forty years of successful cooperation between Germany and China were celebrated during a three-day official ceremony in Peking and sent on to the next stage: On 21 August, representatives of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) signed a memorandum of understanding concerning the continuation of the cooperation for another five years. The collaboration in the scientific-technical field is mainly borne by PTB. The President of PTB, Prof. Dr. Joachim Ullrich, praised the fruitful cooperation with the partner institution in China, the National Institute of Metrology (NIM). He emphasized that both metrology institutes cooperate as equals and that both countries benefit from industrial developments and innovations which are based on the highest metrological precision.
