Germany's clean air programmes for cities will become "export hits" - transport min

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Speaking to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung’s Kerstin Schwenn, German transport minister Andreas Scheuer said Germany would see a transport turnaround as his ministry seeks to implement its “emergency programme for clean air,” which includes 1 billion euros slated for electromobility, the digitisation of municipal transport systems, and the retrofitting of urban diesel buses. While he opposes diesel car bans in major cities, Scheuer predicts the country’s clean air programmes will nevertheless become “export hits” for other major cities around the world.
