Dear readers,

2022 is coming to an end. This year was dominated by several crises: The Russian war on Ukraine, the energy crisis, the scarcity of raw materials with impact on international supply chains and the continuing Covid-19 pandemic posed serious obstacles for the global economy. Nevertheless, there were also various encouraging developments. In Hessen, many companies are active in driving the transformation towards a sustainable economy and there are many initiatives that support this process. One excellent example is the opening of the 'ryon' greentech booster, which offers great conditions for aspiring greentech companies in our region. You can read more about this and other intriguing stories in the following newsletter.

Let us look forward together, hopefully, to a more peaceful and stable 2023. Of course, we will continue to support you in word and deed in the coming year with our wide range of services.

I wish you and your loved ones happy holidays and a good start into a healthy, fortunate and successful new year.
