Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck calls on traffic light partner Christian Lindner to speed up aid for companies that have been hit particularly hard by the energy crisis.

"Industry can be supported, including small and medium-sized companies with aid packages," said the Green politician in an interview at the climate conference of SPIEGEL and the consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

The aid of the program intended for medium-sized businesses should be available to everyone as long as it is open, said Habeck.

“Nevertheless, it has to be budgeted for.

The finance minister will have to enter some number in the budget.

These are no longer amounts in the millions that we are talking about, but more money in the billions – and that has not yet been budgeted for," he said in the direction of FDP leader Lindner.

"We have to come to an agreement quickly," Habeck warned.

As Economics and Climate Minister, he relies on companies investing in climate-neutral forms of business.

"We shouldn't make a mess here, we should be big."
