After Olaf Scholz’s visit to China, the Liberals have now passed an 11-point paper, as reported by the “Bild” newspaper. In it, the traffic light party calls for a new policy to protect critical infrastructure in Germany and the exclusion of rogue states and dictatorships and their corporations from the area.
For example, the FDP is calling for the foreign trade law to be tightened in order to give the federal government more of a say when it comes to selling German infrastructure abroad and to dictatorships. The aim is “that the federal government will have more say in deals like the ones that have now been made in Hamburg,” said Bremen FDP leader Thore Schäck, who presented the paper on Monday together with Secretary General Bijan Djir-Sarai.

And that applies, of course, and in particular to Germany’s second most important port in Bremerhaven,” Schäck is quoted as saying in the report.

And further: “We can no longer give power over parts of critical infrastructure to companies that are under the extensive influence of authoritarian regimes.” It is important that the federal cabinet has to vote in such partial takeovers in the future. “It has to decide unanimously and not only mostly.”
