Voith CEO Hubert Lienhard warns against protectionism
The Voith CEO also sees opportunities in this new situation, particularly with respect to the economic relationship between Asia, Germany and the EU. “We now have the opportunity, together with Asia, to show our firm commitment to globalization. We can definitely identify new partners now for substantial and ambitious agreements in the Asia-Pacific Region. But here, we need a clear commitment of the EU as a reliable and assertive negotiation partner. New agreements have to be more quickly ratified by the EU than before.”
For 150 years, Voith’s technologies have been inspiring customers, business partners and employees around the world. Founded in 1867, Voith today has around 19,000 employees, sales of €4.3 billion and locations in more than 60 countries worldwide and is thus one of the largest family-owned companies in Europe. Being a technology leader, Voith sets standards in the markets of energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transport & automotive.
