CASE STUDY Success Story Fritz Stephan 15
Digitalization and Industrie 4.0 are trending , but they are not an empty hype . What they have in common is that they create new value by connecting people . Value for end users and consumers as well as enterprises everywhere . The connected world benefits from all people around the globe working as one . The strengths of the emerging economies can come together with those of the G7 nations . The Internet and the cloud have shown the way . Digitalization will get us to our destination .
The Chinese Year of the Rooster started on January 28th . The rooster is a symbol of honesty and reliability , but he also knows how to fight . Let us all join the fight for freedom and free trade . New tariffs and other barriers to trade should not be part of our world .
