VDMA in Brussels
VDMA’s office in Brussels bridges the gap between business and politics. The association informs its member companies about political developments that affect mechanical engineering. For policymakers in Brussels, the European Office (EurO) is a reliable point of contact with in-depth knowledge about the mechanical engineering industry to ensure that lawmaking does not happen in isolation from the real world in which companies operate.
Only in a strong European Union will Europe and European industry meet the challenges of the future. From the point of view of the VDMA, it is important that the member states once again made a clear commitment to cooperation at the summit in Sibiu before the European elections.
In the long term, German and European mechanical engineering companies can only thrive in a strong EU in global competition. This makes it all the more important to strengthen the European Parliament in the forthcoming European elections with a broad legitimacy: "Go Vote - Engineering industry votes for Europe".
Just in time for the start of the European election campaign, the VDMA is launching its initiative "Go Vote - Engineering industry votes for Europe". With this initiative, the Association calls on its members and their staff to take part in the European elections on 26 May 2019.
At the European Political Reception at the Hannover Messe, former Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel demanded more common efforts in Europe - and called to strengthen pro-European forces in the European elections.
