[OZ-20: addresses]


On social-political-economic support, we very much appreciate the written addresses from Alexander Mitsch, spokesman of WerteUnion and Beibut Atamkulow, Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development of Kazakhstan. Minister Atamkulow may join the opening session, which in positive case will be decided right to date. Also we had requested the Prime Minister of NRW-state Armin Laschet, to join us for the opening, however this Friday were informed, that he cannot make it. Next time, for sure we will invite him again.


Virtually as the landlord of the venue, Peter Weber, Major of Olpe will welcome us at the Olpe Cityhall. Likewise, we are looking forward to Klaus Gräbener, Managing Director of the Siegen Chamber of Commerce, giving us some words representing local industry and trade.

The Welcoming session will start on Monday, March 03

The Welcome-Address on behalf of German Heavy Industry will be kindly provided by Dr. Andreas Topp, R&D Responsible for Material and Process at Continental on “future mobility, transformation, and the need for alliances and cooperation with the example of TaraxagumTM (dandelion tire undertaking) and beyond”.

And last but not least at all, Prof. Klaus Töpfer, Federal Minister & UNO General Director a. D. will join us again, this time via skype on plan. For those who could not attended OZ-18, that is what he prospectively offered and that is, what we appreciate very much.
