Germany – Trip to Berlin by Nathalie Loiseau (6-7 November 2017)


Minister for European Affairs Nathalie Loiseau will be in Berlin on November 6 and 7.

On November 6, she and her German counterpart, Michael Roth, will present the 2017 De Gaulle-Adenauer Prize to the vocational schools of Kehl (“Berufliche Schulen Kehl”) for their exemplary work in cross-border professional training. Created in 1988 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Elysée Treaty, this €10,000 prize is awarded to individuals, initiatives or institutions whose work represents a notable contribution to strengthening French-German friendship.

On November 7, Interior Minister Gérard Collomb and Nathalie Loiseau will co-chair the first plenary meeting of the Franco-German Integration Council with their German counterparts, Thomas de Maizière and Michael Roth. In addition to the interior ministers and the two secretaries-general for Franco-German cooperation, the Franco-German Integration Council brings together 20 members of the French and German administrations, local governments, associations, and civil society organizations working on integration issues on both sides of the Rhine. Its aim is to highlight experiences and best practices relating to integration and to move our national systems forward in such areas as language study, civil training, academic success and equal opportunity, professional orientations, and regional development and housing.

During her visit, Ms. Loiseau will also have bilateral political meetings.
