BERLIN (Reuters) - The centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), the ecologist Greens and the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) presented their three-way agreement for a new government to take over from a coalition led by conservative Angela Merkel on Monday.

Following are comments from analysts, businesses and associations:

DEPUTY DIRECTOR AT THE JACQUES DELORS CENTRE LUCAS GUTTENBERG

"The agreement is good news for Europe and the euro zone."

PRESIDENT OF IFO ECONOMIC INSTITUTE CLEMENS FUEST

"The traffic light coalition has decided not to suspend the debt brake beyond 2022, although it is currently unclear whether the pandemic will be over by then. Maybe this will be reconsidered."

PRESIDENT OF ASSOCIATION OF GERMAN TRANSPORT COMPANIES (VDV) INGO WORTMANN

"In the area of ​​mobility... there are a number of central components that we absolutely need in order to advance the mobility transition by 2030. Now it is important to put these building blocks into practice. The industry is ready for it."

PRESIDENT OF THE BFW CONSTRUCTION AND PROPERTY ASSOCIATION ANDREAS IBEL

"The construction of 400,000 apartments per year is a very ambitious goal... This is a benchmark for the new government... We hope that the real estate industry will finally have a strong point of contact with an independent construction authority."

CLIMATE PROTECTION GROUP DEUTSCHE UMWELTHILFE

"The signature of the car companies is obvious. The outcome in the field of transport is in breach of climate protection decisions by the Constitutional Court... The coalition agreement is not enough to meet the Paris climate protection limit."
