Laschet and Spahn call for more start-up funding
Shortly before the election for the CDU presidency, candidate Armin Laschet and his supporter Jens Spahn send out an impulse paper to the party. The paper is primarily about a modernisation drive for Germany.
In a ten-point paper, candidate for the CDU presidency Armin Laschet and his supporter Jens Spahn insist on a modernization push for Germany. The paper was sent to CDU district chairmen, state and federal parliamentarians, and CDU European parliamentarians. NTV.de quotes from the email.
Among other things, it says that Germany needs a digital ministry "worthy of its name". By 2030, the Federal Republic should have "the most modern digital infrastructure". Start-ups should receive more state support, including better incentives for venture capital. Structurally weak regions are to be promoted through simplified approval procedures and lower tax rates. Laschet and Spahn promise the economy a "moratorium on burdens".
On 16 January, the CDU party conference will decide on Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer's successor as CDU leader. In addition to Laschet, Norbert Röttgen and Friedrich Merz are running as promising candidates. A close result is expected. Among the recipients of the mail from Laschet and Spahn is also a large part of the delegates.
