Handelsblatt Global Edition

The Economic Council, a business association with ties to the CDU, is also concerned about the strong focus on social policy in the first year of the coalition. “This is the completely wrong signal to send at the wrong time,” Kurt Lauk, the president of the council, told Handelsblatt Global Edition. "In Terms of domestic politics it is burden for the young generation and in terms of foreign policy, we are conveying the message to our European colleagues that they can drink water while we drink wine", commented Lauk.
