Berlin (dpa) - Federal government and business come together in the Chancellery for a top meeting on the difficult change in the auto industry. First, Chancellor Merkel welcomes union representatives for lunch. In the afternoon, federal ministers and representatives of car manufacturers will join them. According to IG Metall, business and politics should accompany the change in the automotive industry towards alternative drives even more decisively. Hundreds of thousands of jobs in the industry could be at risk - if the manufacturers missed the connection in the production of electric cars.
