The central priority of economic policy - and therefore of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy - is to lay the foundations for economic prosperity in Germany and to ensure that this prosperity is spread broadly throughout the population.
The essential task of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is to shape the conditions that foster successful economic activity on the basis of personal and entrepreneurial freedom, competition and stability. The Ministry's legislative, administrative and coordinating functions in areas such as competition policy, regional policy, SME policy, energy policy, and external economic policy are geared to this task.
