The agreement will also provide extra support to Songjiang companies looking to expand in Germany, as well as create a special industry fund to boost the district's ongoing drive to upgrade its industry.
The two sides confirmed the deal on May 24 during the visit of a high-powered German delegation to Shanghai, which was headed by Peter Ramsauer, chairman of the Committee on Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany, and Peer Steinbrück, Germany's former minister of finance.
