VDMA: Germany must not isolate itself
Mechanical engineers in Germany expect the new government will set the correct economic course immediately after its constitution. VDMA President, Carl Martin Welcker spoke to journalists at the 9th German Maschinenbau-Gipfel (Mechanical Engineering Summit) in Berlin: “We reject isolation tendencies and backwards-looking policies, irrespective of their complexion! Mechanical engineering and the entire German industry thrives on its cosmopolitan outlook and any reversal here would damage our society and our well-being,” Welcker reiterated.
