Christian Hiller von Gaertringen, born in Stuttgart, is founder and partner of Africa Partners GmbH, editor of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, and an expert in African Business and finance. After studying economics in Lyon and Vienna, he worked as a business journalist and correspondent for numerous German and French media, including Die Welt, Frankfurter Rundschau, Le Monde and Wirtschaftswoche.
Hiller von Gaertringen has been intensively involved with the neighbouring continent of Africa for many years. He pleads for the continent to be perceived not only as a poorhouse and recipient of donations, but also as a worthwhile market and boom region. Most countries would have recognized this long ago. Hiller von Gaertringen writes in his book “Africa is the New Asia” that Germany threatens to miss the opportunities of the African market.
