Esser emphasized that the trade-only exhibitions in Cologne and Friedrichshafen are vital to the RDA. In regards to political matters, he identifies a special need for action concerning the trade tax addition. He would also like to avoid duplication of effort of the different federations and to reinforce the co-operation between the federations. Furthermore, the expansion of the portfolio of the RDA-Academy is on his agenda.
