The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has set up a ‘Contact Point for Supply Chain Security’. The aim is to ensure, wherever possible, that the production and supply of necessary component products run smoothly again. The establishment of the contact point was agreed upon by Chancellor Angela Merkel and the minister-presidents in their conference call on 15 April.

The Supply Chain Contact Point is the Federal Government’s key port of call for companies. It handles all issues related either to the production and delivery of component products or to the supply of raw materials in general. Furthermore, an exchange and solutions network involving federal ministries, state ministries for economic affairs, and associations has been created to be able to take timely and tailored action and share experience efficiently.
