Digital economy: Digital association Bitkom distances itself from the AfD

The digital association Bitkom has warned of the effects of implementing AfD demands. Germany’s digital economy would be damaged and international competitiveness would be massively burdened, according to a position paper by the association. Bitkom represents more than 2,200 companies from the digital economy in Germany that employ more than two million people.

The association primarily criticizes the AfD’s positions on immigration. According to Bitkom, the shortage of IT specialists would worsen under the conditions of an AfD policy. There are already 149,000 open positions in Germany that cannot be filled. This gap cannot be closed without immigration.

“Almost 1.4 million people from all regions and countries work in Germany’s IT and telecommunications companies alone,” said Bitkom President Ralf Wintergerst. “They are indispensable for digital Germany. Diversity makes us strong.”

The German digital economy is also concerned about the AfD’s denial of man-made climate change and the party’s demand to leave the EU. In addition to peace, freedom and stability, the EU internal market is one of the alliance’s greatest achievements. If you want to keep up with leading digital locations such as the USA, China and, in the future, India, you will only be able to do so within the EU.

Other business associations such as the Federation of German Industries had previously spoken out in favor of publicly opposing the AfD.
