The "Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit" organized a workshop near Cologne on "Europäische Ratingagentur: was hat der Mittelstand davon?"(freely translated: "European Rating Agency: what are the benefits to the German Mittelstand?").
The workshop gathered nearly all German players in the rating market (11 companies have requested registration as Credit Rating Agencies in Germany), politicians, academcis, rating advisors in order to discuss the many aspects relating to Credit Rating Agencies.
