3. Biodata:
hassanzadah_ghulamGholam Hassanzadeh was born 1950 in Afghanistan. He studied mechanical engineering in Kabul and Mannheim, Germany. He was responsible for the planning and implementation of power plant projects at Siemens. In 1993, following two years of sales and marketing activities in the U.S., he took over as head of sales for fossil-fueled power plants in China. In 2000, Hassanzadah coordinated the company’s marketing of steam power plants in the Asia-Pacific region. He began setting up the Siemens office in Kabul in October 2002.

Siemens AG, Berlin and Munich, officially opened a permanent office in Kabul on February 6, 2003. Following an over 20-year break in ties with Afghanistan, the company is resuming its business activities in the country. The Kabul office will coordinate all Siemens activities in Afghanistan and offer customers a broad spectrum of products, systems, services and overall solutions from a single source. Three Siemens Groups – Industrial Solutions and Services, Medical Solutions and Power Transmission and Distribution – have already received their first infrastructure orders in the country.

Siemens has an extensive history in Afghanistan, commencing in 1925 as a cross-border business over Siemens India and in 1936 with setting up direct office facilities. In 2002 Siemens re-established its activities in Afghanistan. At present, Siemens is supporting a coordinated approach by the Afghan government with technical investigation, analysis and technical and commercial proposals for urgent infrastructure projects.
