Monday, 17 August 2020, Munich, Free State of Bavaria, Germany: Israel’s Ambassador to Germany, Jeremy Issacharoff paid a working visit to the Head of Bavarian Chancellery, Dr. Florian Herrmann, Minister of State for Federal and European Affairs and Media.
Bavaria and Israel entertain excellent bilateral, and particularly economic ties, that are intensified through the Bavarian Representation headquartered in Tel Aviv. In fact, Dr. Herrmann travelled to Israel beginning of August 2019 to learn more about the technological and startup scene in Tel Aviv as well as to sign agreements for further technological exchanges. Especially in the areas of Digital Health, Fintech, Cybersecurity and Industry 4.0, Israel is one of the driving forces of the digital future, and Bavaria facilitates Israeli know-how arriving to Germany.
A milestone during the conversation between Ambassador Issacharoff and Minister Dr. Herrmann were further programmes to finance youth and student exchanges in order to solidify the partnership, and mutual cultural understanding.
Minister Dr. Herrmann also took the opportunity to felicitate the State of Israel for establishing official diplomatic channels with the United Arab Emirates in the hope of future peace with more Arab neighbours.
On Tuesday, 18 August 2020, Minister of State Dr. Florian Herrmann accompanied German Federal Minister of Defence Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, Israeli Ambassador Jeremy Issacharoff, Air Force Inspector Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhartz and Commander of the Israeli Air Force Major General Amikam Norkin to a visit to the Dachau concentration camp memorial site.
