Professor Bernd Eberstein's timeline, written to commemorate the OAV's 100th anniversary, illuminates more than just the history of Germany's leading trade association with Asia. It equally gives a thorough historical account of German-Asian business relations throughout the past century. The spectrum of material spans the pioneering works of the association's founders to the turbulent times of the Asian financial crisis, which also affected the German economy. The history of foreign trade is rendered tangible and comprehensible, as are the varied tasks and possibilities of a trade association.
The OAV timeline documenting the first 100 years of OAV's history can be purchased directly from the contacts provided for €35.
