16.12.2021 : 1951 - 2021

The Team of the German EHI Retail Institut decided to connect its annual X-mas party 2021 with a review of its 70 years history. It was also planned as a good-bye for the editor of the EHI.magazine stores & shops, W.Lambertz : who started in 1984 and retires in the end of the year.

The roots of EHI had been in 1951 the reconstruction of German retail/wholesale after World War II : RGH Rationalization Institute : and in 1957 to establish modern supermarkets : ISB Institute for Self-Service. Both had been merged by Prof.Dr.Hallier becoming CEO : DHI (German Trade Institute) and then newly positioned with the European scope as EHI : also to fit better to the name and format of the EuroShop exhibition. "Topics and HR have changed over the decades" Prof.Hallier stated "but the methods of applied sciences remained the basis of success and have been continuously adjusted and improved. Innovation + Experience is still the Spirit of the present EHI-Team".

05.12.2021 : Global Goals

Prof.Dr.Hallier demands fulfillment of Global Goals instead of outdated Geopolitics. "Geopolitical Thinking belongs to the last century when Colonialism dominated World Politics" the President of the European Retail Academy explained his philosophy. "Today we should act as a Global Commu5ity of Equals knowing that we should share respectfully the resources of the one planet on which we live all. We have to optimize together a world-model of economics, ecology and ethics".

As the best set of tools Hallier sees at the moment the UN Goals 2030. "Independantly from political or religious views of people from different countries this is a box of instruments which can be individually selected from to define own ways of fulfillment or which also globally can be used as a benchmark to compare the status quo scientifically : it reflects and respects global diversity - but aiming a global optimization; and last but not least it allows organizations of civil society, businesses, political bodies and science to participate with its input" Hallier defines the statement of the European Retail Academy.

"After a century of Colonialism and after a century of big political blocks dividing the world after World War II this Congess offers the scope of a century of equal participation despite the size or history of each country and independant from its political or religious believes" Prof.Dr.B.Hallier (member of the Eurasian Economic Club) stated. "Taken the transformation of Kazakhstan starting from independence under the leadership of its First President N.Nazarbayev and the development with its function as a bridge in Eurasia between China and Europe , new views about Ecology by Expo 2017 it could become a World Heritage-example of global peaceful cooperation of equal partners in the 21 st Century."
