Mobility concept, north ring, electrification of “Der Bocholter” and a cycle expressway between Isselburg and Velen - there is a lot under discussion in Bocholt in terms of transport policy. And the city is also making a name for itself elsewhere: Bocholt was recognized as the logistics location in North Rhine-Westphalia in 2019; and it is the most bicycle-friendly medium-sized town in Germany. Reason enough to put the topic of traffic at the center of the first business break of the new year - and that with a speaker and discussion partner who knows what he is talking about in two ways: Hendrik Wüst MdL. The CDU politician has been the Minister of Transport for the State of North Rhine-Westphalia since 2017 and he lives in Rhede, which means that he is still closely connected to his home region today.
“Future of mobility: opportunities and challenges for NRW” is Wüst's lecture topic. “Good mobility is THE location factor. We use the opportunities of digitization for better, safer and cleaner mobility and are investing record sums in rails, roads and bike paths. The completion of the B 67 and the electrification of the Bocholt - Wesel railway line are visible signs in our region of record investments by all levels of government in better infrastructure, ”says Wüst. In the subsequent moderated discussion with the participants of the Business Break, the NRW Transport Minister will have an open ear for the business challenges of the local location and the questions of the participants.
The Business Break will take place on Thursday, February 25, 2021, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. as a zoom video conference. Registration for the virtual entrepreneur breakfast - participation in this digital edition is free of charge - at: www.unternehmerverband.org/businessbreak <www.unternehmerverband.org/businessbreak>
