German Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier says Germany must increase the number of apartments at least by half in coming years.

The construction machinery industry that is showcasing its products at bauma will play a key role in this effort.

Bavarian Minister President Dr Markus Söder says innovative and gigantic construction machines from all parts of the world demonstrate the progress that has been achieved by the construction industry.

"The latest machines are even all-electric and emission-free and the construction industry is the indicator of our economic strength."

The Bavarian Minister President also spelled out the key factors that will affect the industry’s future including accelerating government approval processes; intelligent construction practices performed with the help of digital planning, and the level-headed management of area protection and construction activity.

The world’s largest trade fair is breaking every record again this year.

 "With 614,000 square meters of space, bauma has grown once again this year," Messe München Chairman and CEO Klaus Dittrich says.

"A total of 3,700 exhibitors from about 60 countries are showing their innovations here in Munich. Our visitors have come from more than 200 countries."

Visitors can marvel at the gigantic crawler cranes, hydraulic excavators, mining vehicles and much more at this year’s event.
