Chinese delegation visits the Federal Ministry

Legislative Affairs Commission of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China learns about occupational safety and health in Germany

On 4 July 2014, State Secretary Asmussen welcomed a delegation led by Mr Kan Ke, Vice-Chairman of the Legislative Affairs Commission of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China, to the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The delegation learned specifically about occupational safety and health in Germany. State Secretary Asmussen emphasised how occupational safety and health have long been important issues in Germany:

The safety and health of workers is something we care greatly about in Germany. We know that motivated employees, who are in good physical and mental health, are essential not only for companies but also for our economy. The social partners play a vital role in this regard.

Germany is currently working hard to promote this issue at international level as well, in particular within the G20.
