is travelling to Prague on 30 and 31 October to hold intergovernmental meetings and give the keynote speech on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the German-Czech Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
State Secretary Dörr-Voß said: “Germany and the Czech Republic have been close economic partners for many years, the last 14 of them inside the European Union. We have much in common – in economic terms, this includes the high proportion of GDP created by the manufacturing sectors in our economies. With trade of nearly €88 billion, the Czech Republic was one of Germany’s top ten trading partners in 2017. The Czech surplus in bilateral trade shows just how efficient and competitive the industrial sector is there. This positive development could not have happened without the German-Czech Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Since it was founded in 1993, it has been an indispensable link between the German and Czech economies.”
