Monday, 19 October 2020, Dresden, Free State of Saxony, Germany: Saxony’s Premier Michael Kretschmer received the Czech Ambassador to Germany, Tomáš Kafka, for his inaugural visit to the State Chancellery.
A highlight of Saxon-Czech relations is the fact that Ambassador Kafka was honoured in 2001 already with the Federal Cross of Merit for his service as chairman of German-Czech Future Fund.
Kafka was accredited on 20 August 2020 before Federal President Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Before arriving to Germany he served as Deputy Minister for European Affairs of the Czech Republic.
Ambassador Kafka already served once in Berlin at the outset of his diplomatic career between 1991 and 1995 in the capacity of Attaché for Culture, Press, Research and Education at the then branch office of the Embassy of the Czech and Slovak Federative Republic. His first ambassadorship took his to Dublin as ambassador to Ireland from 2008 to 2013.
