Xavier Bettel

Lookingto the future with courage and confidence

Strengthening Luxembourg

Over the past few months, we’ve all done amazing things. So far, we have all managed to get through this health crisis together.

We have secured jobs and stabilized our businesses. We reacted quickly by resorting to short-time working and other direct and indirect financial aid. By doubling the cost of living allowance and freezing rents, we have been able to ensure the social cohesion of our country. We have not abandoned anyone.

Creating perspectives

Short-time working will be extended and thus guarantee jobs next year as well. In addition, we are helping businesses and the self-employed, which continue to be particularly affected by the crisis, with new direct aids. This will give them and their employees the security they need for the future. We will not let them down.

Seizing opportunities

In the near future, our first priority will remain to get this country through the crisis in the best possible way, to save lives, to preserve jobs and to revive our economy. We will seize the opportunity that the virus has given us.

We have a project to further develop Luxembourg in order to preserve our quality of life and meet the major challenges facing our country and our economy. We cling to this project.

We will not conduct unnecessary experiments. We will not introduce tax increases, neither on inheritance nor on wealth. To achieve this, we will focus on innovation -including in the fight against climate change -and on having more time for the family -in particular by encouraging teleworking -as well as high investments for the future generations.

Gilles Baum

“Cheers” to our excellent wine and crémants

Gilles Baum recently requested a debate on viticulture in the Chamber of Deputies. In his eyes, viticulture is not only an important economic sector of our country, but also an essential part of our national heritage. The DP therefore insists on a regular discussion of the topic in Parliament.

Spotlight: Sheila Schmit

Sheila Schmit has definitely found her way. Two years ago she started her own business as a freelance midwife. Before that, she had worked for 15 years at the Esch hospital, among other places. But she was tired of shift work, the organisational structure in the hospital and the working conditions.
