Growth package: Lindner accuses Union of refusing

Growth package: Lindner accuses Union of refusing

In the conciliation process, a growth package was adopted with a traffic light majority – but the Union wants cuts in agricultural diesel subsidies to be reversed.

Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) has accused the Union of refusing to accept the growth package. Lindner said in the evening after a meeting of the mediation committee of the Bundestag and Bundesrat that the German economy urgently needs stimulus. However, the CDU and CSU refused the German economy’s call for a relief perspective and growth impulses. He hopes that there will be a rethink within the Union in the next few weeks.

In the mediation process, a slimmed-down growth package was accepted by the traffic light majority. However, the Union still wants the cuts in agricultural diesel subsidies to be reversed. It is now unclear whether the growth package will receive approval in the Federal Council on March 22nd.
