The German mechanical and plant engineering industry is severely affected by the consequences of the Corona pandemic. The national solo efforts and border closures of the EU member states have further exacerbated the economic difficulties. Disrupted supply chains, slumps in incoming orders and liquidity bottlenecks are just some of the direct consequences. The economy needs a fresh start, based on improved competitive conditions, investment and innovation.
