Until six years ago, Hoppstädten-Weiersbach was a typical sleepy village in west Germany. But then a German entrepreneur and his Chinese partner decided to renovate a former US army barracks into a huge business centre for Chinese executives looking to get a foothold on the European market. Since then, 300 entrepreneurs have moved there with their families. Almost one in three residents is Chinese now and the local economy is benefiting.
