“Mali and Germany – Partners for Peace and Stability” is the next exhibition to be staged in the Federal Foreign Office Atrium. It will be officially opened at 6.00 p.m. on 18 October 2017.
Germany and Mali have long enjoyed a relationship based on close cooperation. Germany was the first state to recognise the newly independent African nation in 1960. In the years and decades that followed, Germany supported Mali through various phases of development, constantly increasing its involvement, especially after 2012. The exhibition focuses on the main aspects of Germany’s engagement in the peace and stabilisation process in Mali. For the next six weeks, it will provide visitors with an overview of German-Malian cooperation in all its many facets. The projects in Mali spotlighted in the exhibition cover a wide variety of areas, ranging from reconciliation to small arms control and cultural preservation.
Dr Patricia Flor, the Head of the Federal Foreign Office Directorate-General for International Order, the United Nations and Arms Control, will open the exhibition jointly with the Ambassador of the Republic of Mali.
The exhibition in the Atrium of the Federal Foreign Office will be open to the public from 18 October to 30 November 2017. Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Admission is free. Click here for more information.
