Episode 23 of POLITICO's EU Confidential podcast features Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee.
This week, we've got two feature interviews for you. As well as Bach, there's Adecco Group board member Stephan Howeg. We also talked to POLITICO's Florian Eder about the recent political developments in Germany.
German twists and turns: Florian Eder gives us a recap of what happened last week when the liberal FDP party quit the German coalition talks after weeks of exploratory talks. Together with our news editor Andrew Gray, Florian talks us through the options that are left for Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Career coach: Stephan Howeg went from mechanic to board member of the Adecco Group, a Fortune 500 company. He now is an ambassador for the EU Skills Week and explains how Adecco is a career coach for millions of people.
Olympics and the EU: Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), is up next. He was in Brussels recently and was the first IOC president to address EU sports ministers. Bach told them he wants to work with the EU to help sport increase social inclusion. But at the same time, he is worried that competition regulators want to restrict how the IOC and its affiliates operate. Last but not least, Bach tells us what to expect from the anti-doping investigation into Russia.
EU WTF moment of the week: The race to relocate the European Medicines Agency and the European Banking Authority out of London. In selecting Amsterdam and Paris as the new homes of the agencies — which ended with the drawing of names out of a hat — it looked like they were a prize to be given away.
