Hongkong Hotpod: Heiße Trends aus der Wirtschaft

The German-language podcast from and about Hong Kong.

Hongkong Hotpod

Hong Kong, the financial metropolis between tradition and transformation, hustle and bustle, has characterised trade in and with Asia for decades like hardly any other city.

But Hong Kong is not only a hub for many German companies in the region; it also has a lot to offer in terms of culture and cuisine. Hot pot, a flavourful and often fiery broth made from various ingredients, perfectly encapsulates the bubbly and diverse character of the city. Together with an equally diverse range of guests, we talk about the economy, technology and future trends in Hong Kong.
