CEO of Daimler, Dieter Zetsche wants to search for workers among the refugees. Most of the refugees are young, well-educated and highly motivated. And these people are a great opportunity for Germany.
Daimler CEO, Dieter Zetsche wants, in his own words, to search for workers and promote his business in refugees centers. He suggests, „That we inform the refugees in the refuge centers on the opportunities and conditions to find work in Germany or at Daimler.“ Zetsche told „Bild am Sonntag“ . Many refugees are young, well-educated and highly motivated. „Such people are exactly (that) we are looking for.“ Said the Daimler CEO.
The refugees area great opportunity for Germany. Similar to decades ago, the foreign workers could „help us to maintain or to increase our prosperity.“ In order to better integrate refugees into the labour market, Zetsche demands for a deportation ban for apprentices. Adolescents should be given the guarantee by education authority, not to be expelled, he said.
Daimler expects sales record in China
Zetsche said in an interview with „Bild am Sonntag“, not only about refugees. Despite the current financial turmoil and declining growth rates in China, Daimler CEO does not expect a downturn: „I do not see the global economic crisis,“ he said. „The world economy this year is growing almost 3%, Europe and the USA run well.“
Also in view of China crisis could be nowhere in sight: „The reactions oft he financial markets and all the dire predictions are exaggerated. The Chinese economy is growing, albeit more slowly, as well as the automotive market.“
Daimler sold 53%more Mercedes in China in August than last August and expects for 2015 with a sales record in China of more than 300,000 vehicles.
