Berlin (dpa) - When the Chancellor receives the economy, it was often about the auto industry. After tractor protests across Germany, Angela Merkel invited to the "Agricultural Summit" - and assured the farmers to include them in further specifications for nature and climate protection. She signaled several times for the accused farmers who are "a very important part of society". In the new year, a big dialogue about social expectations for the farmers should follow.
