More Realism in Policy


On the occasion of the Day of German Industry 2020 (TDI), BDI and its Vice-Presidents address its appeal “More Realism in Policy” to political decision-makers in Europe, the federal government, the federal states and parliaments.


@holger_loesch at the #AusHydrogenConf: "If we want to achieve climate neutrality, we have to provide true opportunities to create alternative economic value." The upcoming #BDI/@acatech_de project #HySupply will explore how a supply chain for green H2 between GER&AUS could work.

Network for free trade – Why the BDI is needed in Brussels

Germany’s prosperity and high living standards are based on a world of free trade. But freedom and competitiveness are not a natural given. They need a strong voice to call for them.


Global Growth Outlook 02/2020

The BDI again expects weak global economic growth of a mere three percent this year. Global trade remains weak, we anticipate an increase of only 1.5 percent. Foreign trade will not be contributing to German economic growth. The increase in GDP will again this year be curbed by foreign trade. Only domestic demand generated by construction activity and private consumption will keep growth above zero.
