What the people say

"France and Germany have more in common than just our shared history. It is our aim to shape a joint future for our peoples - a future that will be much defined by the digital transformation. It therefore makes a lot of sense for France and Germany to work together across our national borders and follow a joint approach."

—  Sigmar Gabriel (Patron of 2016 GFYL Conference, Former German Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy)
