Activities of VDMA East

The VDMA East has put its finger on the wound at the latest Industry discussion at the Saxon Ministry of Economic Affairs and addressed numerous obstacles to success.
The implementation of the master plan for the industrial city of Berlin is picking up speed. The most recent meeting of the Senate, associations and chambers focused on industry talks and the media presence of the industry.
VDMA, IG Metall and Federal Economics Minister Altmeier have committed themselves in the industry dialogue to using the economic opportunities arising from digitisation and artificial intelligence to secure the future of mechanical engineering.
Saxony's politicians did not miss the opportunity to visit numerous medium-sized companies at the Intec and Z. They informed themselves about the latest trends, but also about current challenges.
In January, board members and the Commissioner for Eastern Germany Hirte exchanged views on numerous controversial topics. Another milestone will follow in the summer of 2019.
The Thuringian vocational school landscape cannot keep up with the digitalization in the industry. VDMA East, IHK East Thuringia, entrepreneurs and Education Minister Holter therefore discussed deficits and measures.
