Lord Major of the City of Dresden Visits Exyte Group in Singapore

Exyte was pleased to welcome Dirk Hilbert, Lord Major of Dresden (Germany), and Dr. Robert Franke, Head of Economic Development of Dresden at our Exyte APAC headquarters in Singapore in March. 

Both were part of a delegation from the German federal State of Saxony, led by its prime minister, Michael Kretschmer. The high-ranked delegation was on a tour to Singapore from 13 to 16 March to foster their relationship with Singapore and to learn more about the high-tech initiatives of the city-state.

The meeting with Dirk Hilbert and Robert Franke was another excellent opportunity to strengthen our network with top representatives from the “Silicon Saxony” Initiative. Silicon Saxony was founded as a network for the semiconductor industry in Dresden in 2000. Since then, this initiative has grown into a huge network with 350 members at present. Among the members are major customers from the semiconductor industry and of course Exyte. Silicon Saxony is connecting manufacturers, suppliers, research institutes, universities and public institutions.
