It is an unusual statement for an economy minister who is hoping to soon become prime minister himself. "The situation for medium-sized companies is more than serious," says Bernd Althusmann (CDU) at a panel discussion of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Hanover, "many companies have their backs to the wall".
