Fraktioun Teambuilding

News parliamentary group – November 2020

Teambuilding

In October, the parliamentary group organised a day during which the team analysed projects for the next parliamentary year.

At the new Mama Shelter hotel, parliamentary group collaborators worked, laughed and discussed together.

With the significant increase in the number of employees in recent months, this was an opportunity to promote team spirit.

In the next two pages of the magazine, new team members will have the opportunity to introduce themselves.

New employees

I discovered my interest in politics through my studies at the United Nations University in Maastricht. After successfully completing my master’s degree in public policy and human development, I joined the team on April 1, 2020. Within the parliamentary group I take care of issues related to education, the economy and digitization.

Eric Thill

I am immensely happy and proud to have the chance, since summer, to work for the parliamentary group and to deal with issues relating to housing, spatial planning and the interior. It is a great pleasure for me to share my experience in the field, as mayor and president of the Northern District of the DP, and to take care of these important matters.

I have been a member of the DP and the JDL since 2011. In 2019, I had the great opportunity to participate as a DP candidate in the European elections. I obtained a master’s degree in international finance and banking regulation from Cass Business School in London, and a master’s degree in European economics from the College of Europe in Bruges. Since January 2020, I have been supporting our MPs on the front lines on subjects related to budget and fiscal policy and financial regulation.

Christine Fixmer

After my master’s degree in sociocultural linguistics in London, I spent the last ten years in the financial sector, advising various funds and their clients. I’ve always been interested in politics and always wanted to do something where I could be of use to the country and its people. My files include justice, press, foreign policy, civil service and institutions.

I studied the Development of Multimedia Products at the University of Aveiro (Portugal). Before coming to Luxembourg in 2014, I gained international experience in different studios in Porto, Munich and Innsbruck. Since mid-2020, I have been working within the “New media communication” team. I develop 2D graphics, digital animations and I edit videos and photos for the digital DP presence on social networks.

Yuriko Backes

Yuriko Backes – the new minister of finance

As Minister of Finance, a natural priority is to ensure that our public finances remain sound. This is because we want to prepare our country for the future by focusing on sustainable development and investing in digital development.

Citizens’ Assembly

Prime Minister Xavier Bettel announced the formation of a Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate last autumn. It all started at the end of January: In the first of around 15 meetings, the members were first informed about the current state of affairs in climate policy.

Xavier Bettel

Focus on social cohesion

In his state of the nation address, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel highlighted the social-liberal aims of the government by announcing new social measures.

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.
