German Asian Business Circle.

Connecting businesses across borders

Welcome to the German Asian Business Circle!

The German-Asian Business Circle (DAW) was founded by DAW President and Honorary Consul General of Nepal Bodo Krüger in 1995 and has since developed into one of the most influential Asian-focused business clubs. The DAW consists of a network of more than 1,900 companies and institutions, whose collective aim is to foster friendship between Asian countries and Germany and to build bridges between those cultures, in order to better facilitate economic cooperation. This is realized not only through a variety of business events and seminars, but also through recreational events such as the annual DAW Golf Cup.
