Summary ECO May 3, 2021 at 12.00 with Tobias Ketterer, General Secretariat European Commission, Policy Coordinator/Department Strategic Foreign Policy Issues (incl. G7/G20)

Subject: EU-China-US: What is the EU's strategy in this triangle?

EU-China Relations:
1. Working with China to support effective multilateralism and combat climate change
2. Commitment to peace, security and sustainable economic development worldwide
3. Building more balanced and reciprocal trade and investment relationships
4. Strengthening the competitiveness of the Union and ensuring a level playing field
5. Strengthening the security of critical infrastructure and the technology base

Analysis of the geopolitical situation:
• The US, EU and China are important global players
• No bi-polar world as a solution to global problems, the approach must be more complex
• Note the size of the population as an important factor, so India as a global player should also be considered on an equal footing
• Reform of the WTO must be initiated
• EU canon of values ​​as an important, non-negotiable benchmark
• Respond to China's advances with intelligent, international and democratic approaches
• State subsidies and mergers in the economy must be coordinated fairly

In order to further develop our Europa Café online series thematically, we will also be dealing with the topic of India from early summer 2021.

  1. In recent months I have noticed that more and more scooters and motorbikes are being parked in the pedestrian zones (FGZ). At Marrahaus Süd, everyday life is that you rattle through the FGZ with the dirt slingshot and then park by the bike racks...

    Recently and drastically: I cycle through the Schwibbogengasse and want to park my bike on the corner by the ice cream parlour. There are two heavy machines in the FGZ that are just being started. A young woman with a child sits on the first one and really accelerates so that everyone benefits too. I walk up to them and ask: "Excuse me, why are you parking in the pedestrian zone?". She grins at me and gives me the middle finger. The second machine approaches loudly from behind. The driver wants to get off and calls over: "What do you want son of a bitch anyway?"

    I spare myself my answer "You don't even know my mother" and push my bike into the FGZ, they don't follow me ...

    1. I've also been complaining about that for years, my better half and I have often been hit by all sorts of road users in the pedestrian zone when we were walking. The police and public order office are obviously looking the other way on instructions from the top management and refrain from doing anything to guarantee a minimum level of traffic safety in the pedestrian zone.

      And I don't even talk about our rabble anymore, I just state that antisocial behavior can no longer be tied to the wallet.

  2. I don't contradict that, I have been anchored in the cultural scene for more than 4 decades and have worked for many years at events (Deutschhofkeller, Bürgerhaus Böckingen vault, youth center Schillerstraße, then OLGA-Halle ...) ...

    One reason for the lack of viewers could be in the comedy house. There are a variety of jokers.
    Whether this is the task of a highly subsidized company is a matter of controversy.

  3. I have an extremely ambivalent relationship to the Kulturkeller: a claustrophobic room with uncomfortable seating.
    I used to be there a lot and, for example, visited the most pathetic local fun group ever, the Gauwahn (creepy).
    The room is also unsuitable for film screenings, but that doesn't stop the KoKi from doing so. I co-founded this association, co-managed the first years at Cinemaxx and then left because I see no future for the project.

    1. Even if I can understand your arguments and don't know a good Heilbronn fun group myself, one has to acknowledge that there are still a few Heilbronners who continue to strive for the Kulturkeller, even if, according to Heilbronner's voice, the spectators should stay away. And I believe that this commitment should be supported.
