In times of the Corona crisis, we are painfully experiencing how vulnerable the system in which we live and work is. The necessary emergency actions of the government left their mark on the private life of people and the global economy. International supplier networks must bounce back quickly from the massive restrictions of the past months so that our companies can overcome this severe recession preferably without any major damage. The industrial position of Germany is once again expecting challenging times, in which some stakeholders will completely reposition themselves on the market and have to reflect more than ever on what has made our position strong in the first place: the quality promise “Made in Germany”.
