“It is great to be living and working again in the country I fell in love with as a student. The United Kingdom and Germany are firm friends and allies and will remain so. We want to work closely together over the coming years. Together we can make progress on major international issues like peace and security, prosperity and development, climate change and digital transformation. We can cooperate, especially, in the field of education and research. In business, we have close mutual ties and are on the lookout for new projects. We also want to learn from one another and enjoy all that we have in common through youth exchanges, town twinnings and sport. In the cultural field we have been influencing each other for centuries. Theatre, dance, literature and music, from pop to classical, have a way of bringing us together. Let’s unleash our curiosity. It’ll be worth it.”
