Euskaraz irakurri: Tapia eta lehendakaria elkarrekin joango dira Alemánra Mercedes Benzeko zuzendaritzarekin biltzeko
The Minister Arantxa Tapia will accompany the Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, on his trip to Germany to meet with the management of Mercedes Benz to “talk especially about the new investments”.
“Our goal in Germany is to talk about the problems of the workforce, but above all about new investments, support and public-private collaboration,” the minister assured this Wednesday before entering the Basque Parliament.
As he explained, the Department of Economic Development, Sustainability and the Environment has prepared a trip “to assist some German multinationals located in the Basque Country, including Mercedes”. The minister has assured that the intention of the Vaso Government is to “give special importance” to this meeting in which the Lehendakari will participate.
During his visit to Germany, Tapia will also meet with the directors of other companies such as Bayern, due to its presence in Viralgen, or Triumph, due to its presence in Gasteiz.
Likewise, they will visit a technology center specializing in areas of interest in the Basque Country. It will be a one-week trip in which they will coincide with the Lehendakari in the meeting with those responsible for Mercedes Benz in Stuttgart.
Strike in Mercedes
Asked about the strike of the Mercedes staff in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Tapia said that they trust the ability of the committee and the company management to reach an agreement. In this sense, she has stated that “they have been working on this aspect for some time”.
“We know the difficulty of the situation, the uncertainties and the illusion caused by being able to have a large plant for the future with a relevant investment and at the same time face an uncertain economic situation. We know what the conditioning factors are but we trust that it can be carried out to a good end,” he assured.
