the President of The Federal Association of German industry (BDI), Ulrich Grillo, feared in a catchment of the AfD in the Bundestag negative consequences for Germany as a business location.
“a retreat into The National is not an Alternative for Germany”, said Grillo, the Berliner “Tagesspiegel” (Sunday). To play “with Fears is shameless. To be against Europe, against the transatlantic partnership, against immigration – it is poison for us as an export nation. The reputation of our country threatens to deteriorate.”
On the question of what contribution should provide entrepreneurs, managers and Wealthy, to protest voters for established parties to recover said Grillo: “We all need to get out of the comfort zone. We from the economy and want to start a conversation with skeptics and insecure citizens.”
To TTIP and trade agreements in General have caused the BDI to a civil dialogue. In addition, we encourage associations and companies to look for the dialogue with the people. “Understanding and trust that has been lost, can be difficult to win back,” said Grillo.
