On April 24 in 2018, Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier visited HANNOVER MESSE, the world’s most important industrial trade show, which was held this year under the title “Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate”. Peter Altmaier visited the Virtenio GmbH booth on his tour of the fair together with VDMA President Carl Martin Welcker and ZVEI President Michael Ziesemer. In a profound and positive discussion, the main topics of the fair of networked industry and digitization in connection with the solutions of Virtenio GmbH for global supply chains were reflected. When asked where politics could help in digitisation, Altmaier answered mischievously: “You have to tell me that”.
