Minister Altmaier is meeting today with Eric Wiebes, Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Netherlands. They are continuing the dialogue on energy policy issues which they began in The Hague in early September.

Federal Minister Altmaier said: “We are all facing similar challenges as we restructure our energy systems. If the energy transition is to succeed, it is important for us to maintain a trusting dialogue with our neighbours. The Netherlands and Germany wish to work even more closely together in the energy field, both bilaterally and at regional level.”
