STUTTGART (dpa / LSW) – Baden-Württemberg’s Economics Minister Nicole Hofmeister-Kraut (CDU) is on a two-day visit to Scotland on Monday. The nearly 40-strong business delegation and CDU politicians are researching the topic of environmentally friendly hydrogen.
Hofmeister-Kraut said the production, transport and use of green hydrogen is increasingly becoming a location factor for the economic development of individual regions. Same for Southwest. “Trusted partnerships with regions of the world with whom we share common ideas of responsible business are essential to the business space.” The partnership with Scotland brings benefits for both parties: Baden-Württemberg can provide technologies for the production of green hydrogen in Scotland, which can then also be distributed in the country.
During her visit, Hofmeister-Kraut will also meet her Scottish counterpart Ivan McKee, Minister for Economy, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise, for talks.
