Tourism boost expected from Gotthard tunnel – Chinese bid for German robot maker Kuka frowned upon in Berlin
China wants to base its future economic growth on highly developed automated systems in the workplace. DW's Frank Sieren says that although this is an important strategic step globally, it poses great risks domestically.
Chinese appliance firm Midea has announced it has launched a cash offer for a stake of 30 percent in German industrial robotics supplier Kuka. The takeover bid has stoked controversy in Germany and Europe.
Switzerland has a new masterpiece of engineering: On June 1, it inaugurates the world's longest rail tunnel. The Gotthard Base Tunnel brings northern and southern Europe even closer together.
German engineering company Voith has dismissed media reports it has struck a deal with Chinese investor Midea to sell its majority stake in robotics firm Kuka, but didn't rule out that a sale was at all possible.
