ERJ staff report (DS)
Leverkusen, Germany -- Lanxess AG is intensifying communication with political and social leaders on a global level.
The first step is a new liaison office in Germany's capital, Berlin, that will open on January 20 prior to the â€œLanxess Kick-Off Berlin 2011â€ event. The group further plans to open its own office in Brussels in spring 2011.
Lanxess is also intensifying the political dialogue in its global growth markets on relevant issues in the area of energy and environmental policy, and in the university and education sector. These efforts primarily target the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) as well as South Korea, Japan, Singapore and the United States.
To support its expanded activities, the group has appointed a new Public Affairs team. The new office in Berlin will also be headed by Johannes Neukirchen. Formerly head of a government ministerial department, he has already represented the Group's interests in the capital city in the past.
