Media around the world have reported on the Progressive Governance Summit in Berlin. In particular, Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s speech during the conference was picked up. An overview.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s Adress on the State of Democracy at the Progressive Governance Summit 2022 (PGS) was part of global media coverage. Scholz spoke of a Russian “crusade” against liberal democracies and promised Ukraine unlimited aid. Both aspects had not been part of the coverage in this clarity before. Several international news agencies picked up on the chancellor’s speech and passed it on – for example to CNN, the Washington Post, The Guardian, SKY News and many other well-known international titles. The news channel ntv broadcast the speech live, and WELT and Reuters TV reported afterwards. All major German media and numerous editorial offices around the world processed the Chancellor’s remarks at the PGS.
The discussion between the head of the Chancellor’s Office, Wolfgang Schmidt, and the editor-in-chief of The Guardian, Katherine Viner, as well as the U.S. intellectual Anne Applebaum, was also picked up by the media. There were also individual reports on the discussions with the other federal ministers, Hubertus Heil and Lisa Paus, as well as the Vice-Chairman of the EU Commission, Frans Timmermans.
