Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds currently is in Germany attending the National Lieutenant Governors Association’s economic and cultural mission. She will return to Iowa on Sunday.
The purpose of the mission is to promote economic opportunities in Germany – a nation with the largest economy in Europe and the world’s fifth largest national economy. Reynolds and four other association members will meet with the German Vice Chancellor and other economic affairs leaders to discuss trade, transportation, energy, health care and education.
Delegates to the mission – funded by the national association — will meet with German Vice Chancellor Dr. Philipp Rosler, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Philip Murphy, a federal minister to the chancellor, a leader of the Saxon state legislature, the Saxon Minister of Economic Affairs and Transportation, and with energy researchers, university and high school teachers and administrators, business owners, and a hospital medical director. Meetings take place in Dresden, Lommatzsch, Leipzig, and Berlin.
