About Stephan Meyer
Stephan Meyer - ENGLISH INFORMATIONhere you find some information about the member of parliament Stephan Meyer MdL
political judgement of US departement of State
Mr. Meyer represents the future for the governing center‐right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party in Saxony; however, he lacks the traditional exchange and educational experiences with U.S. and American institutions that most of his colleagues in western Germany enjoy. Meyer is a an influential young politician who is moving up in the party; he commands a wide following among politically active young people who come to him to seek out his advice on environmental issues. He is the CDU’s leading expert and authority on these issues, despite his youth. In the fall of 2009, he was elected member of the Saxon State Parliament and immediately took over responsibility for environmental issues within the CDU. He is the party’s official spokesperson for climate/environmental issues. His election did not come unexpectedly as he has been politically engaged in various CDU related organizations and working groups focussing on environmental issues for many years now. At the age of 28, Meyer has already worked as an engineer in Finland, specializing on economic and cost issues (with NOKIA) and in Poland (with an energy supplier). He has also been a guest lecturer at the Kazakh‐German University in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Considering his involvement in political and non‐political areas ‐ he lives in a remote area in Saxony close to the Polish and Czech border and is a strong supporter of German‐Polish Friendship initiatives ‐ we are certain that Meyer will move up very quickly to influential state and possibly national offices within the CDU. Meyer would profit enormously from direct exposure to the U.S. which will make him a better advocate for our common agenda.
