Volkswagen welcomes Prime Minister of Lower Saxony to Wolfsburg
Lower Saxony’s Prime Minister Stephan Weil visited Volkswagen’s main plant in Wolfsburg today. He was joined by the CEO of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, Matthias Müller, and the Chairman of the Group Works Council, Bernd Osterloh, on an itinerary which included a tour of production, where the visitors talked to employees and found out first-hand about current developments at the plant.
The CEO reiterated his assurance that Volkswagen was working intensively on finalizing the technical solutions for its customers as quickly as possible. He added that efforts to uncover the full truth of what had happened were being systematically pursued. Weil, Osterloh and Müller sent also spent some time talking to employees – particularly vocational trainees, the youngest members of the team.
With their belief that the youngest employees would represent the company and carry it in the future, it was important to ensure that they have the proper training necessary for them to take over more executive roles within the company. These employees begin life at Volkswagen by working on the assembly line, and so they would have the best idea of how operations are carried out and how they can be improved.
