Wismar (dpa/mv) - According to the Federal Government Commissioner for Eastern Europe, Carsten Schneider, the federal government will actively participate in the rescue of the Rostock-Warnemünde shipbuilding location. There is a very realistic option of using the shipyard there for the Navy itself, said the SPD politician on Tuesday during a visit to the Wismar shipyard. "This is - one could almost say - a government intervention." He emphasized that the decision-making process is not yet complete.
It would be a win-win situation for the federal government. There is new capacity for the repair and conversion of naval vessels. Then the Navy would not have to beg shipyards for appointments. At the same time, there is a clear perspective for the shipyard workers.
