The Covid 19 pandemic has caused a severe economic crisis. Any form of retaliatory tariffs will only exacerbate the situation. It is therefore important that transatlantic trade relations be relaxed, not escalated.
VDMA NRW welcomes the decision of the Norht Rhine-Westphalian state government to support the economy in the Corona pandemic. The mechanical and plant engineering industry has been severely affected by the virus, and has had to struggle with slumps in sales and supply bottlenecks to date.
The corona pandemic and the lockdown to contain it have hit society and industry hard - with hitherto unforeseeable consequences. In particular, companies acutely need sufficient liquidity to cope with the direct and indirect consequences of the pandemic and to bridge the period until the economy picks up again.
A rapid economic upswing is not in sight for the mechanical engineering industry, but companies are using difficult times to get in shape. A trade agreement between the USA and China would bring a noticeable tailwind.
VDMA-Hauptgeschäftsführer Thilo Brodtmann schildert die Haltung des deutschen Maschinenbaus zu der geplanten Neuauflage der Großen Koaltion und fordert alle Beteiligten auf, sich an die Sondierungsergebnisse zu halten und darüber hinaus die wichtigen Zukunftsthemen nicht aus den Augen zu verlieren.
