This article was originally published in Clinica
If the Christian Democratic and Socialist Union parties (CDU/CSU) are victorious in the forthcoming German election, Lothar Spath could be appointed minister for work, the economy and reconstruction of east Germany. Mr Spath, who is chairman of Jenoptik, which manufactures, among other things, medical laser systems, has been appointed as the first key member of the present shadow cabinet's new "competence team". Mr Spath is known to be a champion of investment and innovation and should he be appointed to the expanded ministry, the medical device and diagnostics industries may no longer find it necessary to criticise their lack of representation in these areas.
