Economy or environment? Both fields are crucial for German ministers!

While the European Union finds itself facing Italy’s exit, ministers of Angela Merkel’s cabinet have been discussing the issue of whether or not Germany should keep on assuming its responsibility as leader of the Union.

Thus, the cabinet disagreed on the position that Germany should hold as an individual in the EU; while some believed that the position of leader cannot be denied, others agreed on the importance of focusing on national issues. Indeed, minister of food and agriculture Helmut Schmidt stated that it was “crucial  that Germany doesn’t waste time on economically failing countries”. Besides, he clearly affirmed he was in favor of a more moderated political system and strongly thinks that his ministry could provide great opportunities in and out of the German soil. Likewise, president of the Deutsche Bundesbank affirmed that Germany should stop giving money to financially weakened countries. Nevertheless, he agrees with the necessity of giving the example. So as to  enhance that position of leader, he proposed to investigate about the industries of vulnerable European countries and try to improve them, rather then raising their dependence towards other nations.

Furthermore, when all ministers were looking for solutions in order to reaffirm Germany’s economy, minister of transport and digital infrastructure (Alexander Dobrindt), and federal minister for the environment, nature Conversation, building and Nuclear safety (Barbara Hendricks), gathered aside, to talk out a new directive both of them were writing. Not only did they want to replace nuclear energy with renewable energy, but also wanted to launch “a program of Green cars”, as affirmed Dobrindt. When she was asked about the accuracy of such directive during a crisis atmosphere, minister Hendricks admitted that the issue was out of context. Having said that, she was convinced that this directive, once it would come into effect, would help the country “gain again its position as a leader giving the right example, fighting climate change and all environmental damages happening around the world”. According to her, another key fact to remember is that renewable energy factories are an opportunity to create employments for the low class and refugees, offering them not only a job, but truly a place in the community.
