Dear Readers,

The news in the past weeks were dominated by the terrible atrocities in Ukraine. The Russia-Ukraine conflict has increased uncertainty about the recovery of the global economy. Our thoughts are with those who are suffering.

However, as almost everything is interconnected in our increasingly complicated world, we have to deal with multiple issues simultaneously in order to shape a better tomorrow. And in times like these, our attention is also drawn to the great efforts that are made to adjust to new challenges.

For instance, a reliable and sustainable supply of Energy plays a particular crucial role these days. We therefore want to introduce you to inspiring new projects in Hessen. At Industriepark-Hoechst, two innovative start-ups have set up pilot plants to produce renewable fuels. In this newsletter, we further want to showcase BioNTech´s impressive expansion at their Marburg site, the conversion of a former automotive plant in Idstein into a modern logistics park and exciting news from our financial center in Frankfurt.

Moreover, I would like to recommend reading our Interview with Robert Fehler from the Indian IT-giant HCL – a great piece about why Hessen is a such an attractive place to do business and to live.

I wish you interesting reading.
