On 1 December, MSLGROUP Germany hosted the 61st Political Salon with Thomas Oppermann, head of the parliamentary group of the SPD in the German Bundestag since 2013. The central topic of the evening was social-democratic politics in times of global crises and political change.
Together with around 40 guests from the economic, political and cultural sphere, he discussed the strengthening of populism worldwide as well as the consequences of the presidential election in the USA. In this context, Oppermann gave his view on the election year 2017 in which not only the Federal states Schleswig-Holstein, Saarland and North Rhine-Westphalia elect their state parliaments. It will also be the year of the parliamentary elections for the German Bundestag.
MSLGROUP Germany will host its next Political Salon in February, with Dr. Peter Tauber, general secretary of the CDU Deutschlands.
