Oliver Bäte, CEO of Allianz SE, shares his view on the refugee situation.

Allianz-Oliver Bäte, CEO of Allianz SE  Oliver Bäte, CEO of Allianz SE 

"Every day, thousands of people are coming to Europe in search of safety and a better life. The tragedy currently unfolding before our eyes is one that cannot be resolved using stop signs and closing borders. Many people have recognized this and are selflessly offering their help wherever it is needed. These gestures of altruism are inspiring and deserve every support. But we Europeans also have to agree on an effective common refugee policy that does justice to all of those involved: the people who are coming here and those who live here. This also includes combating the root causes of migration: war, persecution, poverty, climate change.”
