Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier had an initial conversation today with the new President of the Gesamtmetall employers’ association, Dr. Stefan Wolf, Federal Minister of Economics Altmaier: “The exchange with business is particularly important in the current Corona situation. We must pull together to cope with this serious situation. At the same time, we must not lose sight of the structural challenges. Transformation processes as well as digitization and automation are currently preoccupying many branches of our economy, but of course the metal and electronics industry in particular. We have to work together on smart and correct framework conditions, because we can only master the current crisis with a strong industry. ”Dr. Stefan Wolf, Gesamtmetall employers’ association: “The corona pandemic proves once again that a competitive industry is literally vital: the many well-paid jobs and the resulting abundant tax and premium income have given Germany the financial leeway to deal with this pandemic fight. It will also depend on industry to get out of debt. It is good to know that we have a contact person in the Ministry of Economic Affairs who understands this. ”Both sides agreed that further burdens for companies are an obstacle to a recovery of the German economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
