The BfAI is an agency of the Federal Ministry of Economics.
In a temporary programme (currently running until the end of 1998) to promote the integration of companies in the eastern part of Germany into the world economy, the BfAI also supplies interested parties abroad with additional information about economic trends in that part of the country.
To carry out its task of providing information to companies in Germany, the BfAI needs appropriate sources.
The BfAI works with other organizations to get the information it needs.
With a worldwide network of around 45 foreign correspondents, the BfAI itself has an excellent means of keeping business up to date through exclusive news and background on foreign markets.
An important element for the BfAI is economic information supplied by German diplomatic missions in foreign countries and the German chambers of industry and commerce abroad.
Apart from this firsthand information, the BfAI also undertakes research and analysis.
Each year the BfAI issues over 1,000 different publications on foreign trade.
In China, foreign suppliers mainly co-operate with local sales agents or traditional foreign trade associations (bfai 1993).
In China, buyers demand high (in western eyes even exaggerated) maintenance and customer service (bfai 1993).
