Schulz accused Chancellor Angela Merkel during his speech for not telling voters how she wanted to strengthen the European Union and achieve full employment as he laid out his plan to boost investment and restore solidarity in Europe.
Mr Schulz said he would push Germany into a period of increased investments and renewed eurozone integration.

"For many people, including myself, something changed when we saw the Britons want to leave, when we were anxious about the outcome of the elections in France and the Netherlands", Merkel told voters, some of whom wore straw hats with black-red-and-gold hatbands, the colours of the German flag. "I'm certain that Germany can do more".
Schulz said he was in favour of sticking to Germany's fiscal rules, also known as the debt brake, but he added: "In addition to the debt brake, we need a minimum level of investment that preserves the substance of our country and makes it sustainable". Dr Merkel said her government has already increased spending "massively" on broadband expansion, roads and pre-schools.
Merkel has said she is open to proposals of strengthening the single currency through the creation of a euro zone finance minister who would oversee a pooled budget for investments and transfers meant to help member states cushion downturns.
