On 26 October 2009, the parties CDU/CSU and FDP signed a coalition agreement titled "Wachstum. Bildung. Zusammenhalt." ("Growth. Education. Solidarity.") to be the basis for the incoming German federal government. In the agreement, the parties propose the following measures with relevance to international commerce.
The coalition vows to

  1. increase the competitiveness of local biofuel production. The aim is to revive the market for pure biofuels through favorable tax treatment from 1 January 2010.
  2. "save" medium-sized enterprises ("Mittelstand") from the credit crunch. The existing credit- and guarantee scheme is to be evaluated against its impact on these companies and shall act as a mediator between credit-seeking enterprises and financial institutions.
  3. improve the access of foreign skilled labor to the German labor market. However, access shall be taylored according to "cohesive, clear and transparent criteria" such as qualification, labor demand and integration ability.
  4. improve competition in cross-border electricity trades through the elimination of impediments in the regulation of bottleneck management.
  5. give immediate support to the German dairy industry. For 2010 and 2011, the coalition plans to hand out a total of EUR 750 million to dairy farmers in the form of additional subsidies (EUR500 milion), a higher state contribution to farm-related insurance (EUR200 million) and a liquidity scheme targeted at farmers (EUR50 million).
