Schwerin (dpa / mv) - Three days after the decisions of the federal and state governments to continue the partial shutdown in December, representatives from the state government, business, trade unions and social associations join the MV summit this Saturday (11.00 a.m.) in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania together.
