“With my colleagues, I will come out strongly in favour of a multilateral world order and one that gives good answers of the challenges of tomorrow”, she said.

On the domestic front, the head of Europe’s most dynamic economy pointed to a number of big challenges ahead. The first, she noted was energy transition and living up to Germany’s climate targets – as an industrial country responsible for huge CO2 emissions, renewables are now leading Germany’s energy mix. Merkel further noted that Germany needs to modernize its digital platforms, including fulfilling a plan to digitize all government services by 2025.

All of the challenges ahead, she said, would be best served by a strengthened but more flexible global architecture. “Commitment to multilateralism is essential and a precondition for shaping tomorrow,” Merkel said.
