Investing in the future
Federal Ministry of Finance
Making our country fit for the future requires smart fiscal policy. Forward-looking policy helps to create the jobs of tomorrow and to make growth more sustainable. We are continuing our innovation campaign throughout the pandemic in order to boost private investment and to ensure that Germany emerges from the crisis stronger.
This includes promoting digital technology as a means to facilitate the sustainable transformation of the German economy. By investing in artificial intelligence, we want to make Germany a more attractive hub for research. At the same time, we want to expand and ensure access to high-quality education.
The Digital Pact for Schools provides financing to equip schools with state-of-the-art digital technology. In addition, expansion of the 5G network will guarantee faster internet service and nationwide coverage.
We are also paving the way for climate-friendlier growth. With our pro-environment fiscal policy – which promotes energy storage, heating networks, energy-efficient building retrofits, and clean energy in industry – we are helping to reshape the country. To press forward with the transition to clean mobility, we are supporting the shift to electric vehicles and the expansion of charging infrastructure.
