Now Trump threatens international trade with new protectionism, which is directed against China, but also against Europe and Germany. Even a trade war threatens. The consequences: access to foreign markets becomes more difficult and trading costs rise. Particularly affected: the middle class. Consequences and opportunities of the new world economic order for Hamburg's medium-sized businesses - the topic of our next IMF Lounge. We also kindly invite you to participate in the first IMF summer party after the lounge, which will take place in the Peter-Möhrle-Coffee-Lounge.Participation in the event is free.
