Walter Mennekes with Foreign Minister Steinmeier in Latin America

Walter Mennekes has accompanied the German Foreign Minister as a member of an economic delegation on his trip.........

to Brazil, Peru and Columbia in order to exchange views with local representatives on trends in the world markets and sound out further opportunities for cooperation.

The states of South America are above all economically important partners of Germany, and relationships with them have developed pleasingly well.

Walter Mennekes was pleased with the Foreign Minister’s invitation: “The trip was short, it is true, but very intensive and effective. My conclusion is that when politicians talk to each other it is good for the economy. The flourishing business with our partner in Peru, for instance, is an important and stable pillar of our company.”
