‘Anti-Corona’ protest in Germany attracts thousands

BERLIN — Industrial companies in Germany are concerned about the impact of the latest wave of COVID-19, and especially the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant, on international trade, the Federation of German Industries (BDI) said on Wednesday.

“Companies are concerned that the worsening coronavirus situation could once again lead to restrictions on international logistics and cross-border supply chains,” BDI President Siegfried Russwurm said in a statement.

The German government must ensure that the international exchange of goods for risk sectors in the European Union (EU) and between important international trading partners remains intact. The EU “should keep borders open in the single market,” Russwurm said.
