True enough, Germany’s State Secretary of Transport Michael Odenwald came to the Philippines on July 4, 2017 and met with Elmar Lutter, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lufthansa Technik Philippines. Lufthansa is the largest German airlines and the largest in Europe as well.
Odenwald’s goal in his visit was to assist the Philippine government in solving transportation issues. Thus, he brought with him a group of German businessmen specializing in transportation services. This group made up the entire German delegation that accompanied Odenwald as he convened with Philippines’ Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.
German transportation specialists working in the Philippines like Elmar Lutter and Heiko Nitsche of Mercedes Group Services, Philippines also welcomed Odenwald.
Lutter granted KLIPP.tv a rare chance to have an interview with him, right at the operations base of Lufthansa Technik Philippines in Metro Manila.
Now that the Philippine government is working to solve the country’s long-standing issue on transportation services, government officials are starting to consider partnerships with foreign transport services.
