Masterclass “Economic strategies to bounce back – how to trigger local economic development”

17.12.2021 | Key characteristics of a socially and ecologically balanced market economy

The idea behind this masterclass originates from a paper commissioned by the Governance Fund on the Social-Ecological Market Economy in Germany, which I had the privilege to contribute to. As a former minister for economic affairs in the state of Schleswig-Holstein – a strip of land in the north of Germany characterised by small municipalities and firms – my focus was on small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and on local business development.
