01 Europe - partner for the world for many countries from overseas is the most important trading partner. From 1992 onwards, there will be a single market in Europe. How will that affect international trade? Many countries fear that Europe itself off from with import restrictions and tariffs.
This questions the focus were on the overseas import fair "Partner of progress" in Berlin. The importance of the exhibition and the attention it devotes to international trade in Germany, demonstrated by the visit of the German Federal President Richard von Weizsäcker. He informed himself about the issues with the trade between Europe and the countries of Africa, Asia and Lateinamerikaa.
Germany wants to partnership in overseas trading. However, quality and price of the goods remain essential. The sophisticated and discerning European customer buys what? No longer in raw materials, but in Konsungütern of the trade can be increased. Most East Asian countries have there little problems. Since 1980, they could more than double their exports to Europe. Latin America has old ties to Europe. Worth noting the initiative of the women's Centre in Peru. You came to Berlin, to test the market itself.
"The women's Centre participates for the first time in the fair in Berlin. We are interested to sell handmade knitwear on the European market."

Because trading is more effective the development as any other help.

03. from Gutenberg's country print, a secret, an art just for insiders, has long been the "black art". The modern book printing is known in Germany, Mainz - by Johann Gutenberg was invented.
Today the craft art has become a high-tech manufacturing, dominated only by businesses of large industries. Printing machines have become an important export article in Gutenberg's country. They are supplied in all parts of the world. Because: The newspaper publisher around the world need machines that print in highest quality, also in colour, but at the same time at maximum speed. In a few hours hundreds of thousands of newspaper copies finished his need. The necessary printing machines weighing almost two thousand tons per piece. Entsche end is in the almost incalculable fullness of individual parts by mechanical engineering to electronics, the experience of highly qualified skilled workers and engineers.
Now British major publisher given the largest contract for the printing industry the equivalent of a billion marks.

The picturesque barges with the Brown tarred sails transported early peat bales. Because: The people cultivated large parts of the moorland sheep and soon discovered that the marsh provides also an excellent fuel: the peat. The peat is hardly in demand as fuel. Today, he is appreciated as a fertilizer. After one has eluded him with deep Gräbe water, the soil, consisting of countless dead bog plants, layer by layer can be removed. In handy Bale, it is piled up and dried by air and Sun.
Man, especially, if he takes to help engines, can carry off this miracle of nature in a few hours. Rightly warned against the total destruction of the moor landscape. Because the few remaining Marsh surfaces are a last refuge for many rare animal and plant species. And still the brittle beauty of Moore's fascinated by the people who are looking for recreation, here.
