Tomorrow (9 February) Federal Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle will open the external economic affairs day on architecture, planning and construction at the Federal Foreign Office. His opening address will focus on external economic promotion, the euro and economic growth as well as the opportunities and challenges we face as new powers emerge.
The first external economic affairs day is a platform for representatives from all industrial branches and will bring together export-oriented entrepreneurs, managers and freelancers from the areas of architecture, planning and construction. Its aim is to foster exchange between business, politics and diplomacy. More than 400 participants are expected to attend.
External economic promotion is one of the Foreign Service’s main tasks. The Federal Foreign Office and its more than 220 missions abroad aid and assist German firms worldwide. The missions’ economic sections are above all keen to help small and medium-sized enterprises doing business abroad.
