Germany is facing crucial years. The new federal government promises a "coalition of modernisation" and dares to make more progress. The war in the Ukraine has shifted priorities in the political agenda of the German government, in Germany and in Europe. We show in our policy positions the topics in which we want to get involved in the upcoming political debates and projects to achieve joint results.

  • Working world
