In 1931, the heavy industry at Rhine and Ruhr took over the Berlin-based German section of the Mitteleuropaischer Wirtschaftstag (MWT). The president of the association, Tilo von Wilmowsky, was a protagonist of engineered and economically organized agriculture. He was also the brother-in-law of Gustav Krupp, giving him the ability to bring about a marriage between amanor and furnace and to discover - later with the help of IG-Farben director Max Ilgner and Ulrich von Hassell - a way out of the German crisis of export and agriculture. With distance to the racist policies of the NS-regime and partly in opposition to its foreign trade policies, 1931-1945 the MWT took part in the construction of a Grosswirtschaftsraum, led by Germany. The MWT tried to retain the position of the free entrepreneurship in the context of ordered capitalism, and, at the same time, improved as a developing company the living conditions in the Erganzungsraum South-East Europe by sustainable farming projects in order to create a suitable market for the goods of the MWT-members.
