Daimler CEO expressed concern over anti-EU sentiments

Article by Christian A., on May 25, 2014

Dieter Zetsche, chief executive of German carmaker Daimler AG, is worried about the increasing anti-European Union sentiment in the region ahead of the European parliament elections on May 25. Zetsche remarked last week that the upcoming elections are “more important today than they have ever been.”

He said he does not believe that there is any alternative to a united Europe. The Daimler top honcho acknowledged that the EU is facing several challenges. He also acknowledged the continued disparity between the fortunes of member states.

He remarked the EU is at a point where nations needing further transformation suffer greater hardships than countries that are more successful. Zetsche quipped that lessons can be learned from history, noting 50 years ago, everybody referred to Germany as the sick man of Europe.

Zetsche said that things do change over time, adding that what is needed now is solidarity. He remarked all EU members benefit considerably from the unification and in an increasingly globalized world, saying that no country can survive on its own.

Zetsche said the EU members could learn from each other on a number of issues. He said that the willingness by EU countries to place the common European goal ahead of narrower national interests is important for the longer term. He remarked that mutual support between EU members is essential to progress.
