The RSBK team is led and inspired by Rudolf Scharping.

The basis for this is a long-standing commitment to the contemporary management of state tasks and cooperation with the private sector - both in Germany and in China.

Whether as Minister President of Rhineland-Palatinate or as Federal Minister of Defense, Rudolf Scharping has been involved in many projects for economically sustainable solutions and has supported their implementation. The focus here was on solutions that today are often considered blueprints for efficient cooperation between the state and the private sector.

For more than thirty years, Rudolf Scharping has been committed to cooperation with China and has worked as a strategy consultant for numerous German and Chinese companies as well as public institutions in both countries.

Through his numerous trips to China and constant exchange with Chinese personalities from politics and business, he knows today's China like no one else. Thanks to his deep understanding of the "Land of Smiles" and his knowledge of the economic and political interrelationships in Germany and China, he can provide interested companies and institutions with valuable assistance in strategy and business development.
