The Premier of Baden-Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann, was represented at the function by the Minister of Justice and European Affairs, Mr Guido Wolf as well as the Minister of Economy, Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut. The incumbent German Commissioner, Günther Oettinger, who hails from the same Bundesland, also attended the event as did the German Ambassador to Belgium, Rüdiger Lüdeking.

Minister Wolf, who labels himself a “convinced European“, called the attention of the audience to the European position of the day, the fact that the “debt crisis might cause new conflicts. Moreover the Brexit puts the European Union in a unique situation as to the question in which manner a member state may leave the union. Not of less importance is the menace of populist movement in some European member states”.
