Christoph Matthias Schmidt is a German economist. He is the president of the RWI Essen and since 2009 chairman of the German Council of Economic Experts.
It is not just Britain that is worried about the economic repercussions of Brexit. The German Council of Economic Experts is headed by Christoph M Schmidt, who is preparing Germany for any potential financial fallouts.
Germany’s position as the most influential party in the bloc means that Schmidt’s policies for Germany will be highly influential on the UK’s departure from the European Union.
