„We need a strong and social Europe“

May 29, 2020


A strong Europe is a social Europe! What we need now is to work together to promote a Europe with workers' rights and minimum social standards, and in the framework of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union our ministry will work to achieve just this.


The EU is more than a single market. It combines economic strength and protection. That is something that everyone in Europe should be able to rely on.

By the way: Germany's presidency begins on July 1st! We'll keep you posted.
