Berlin, 27 September 2019
Clément Beaune, Advisor for Europe and G20, Presidency of the French Republic, met with representatives from the German Bundestag and various ministries as well as experts from think tanks for a Political Background Discussion at Körber Foundation. Beaune and the participants discussed the French European policy conducted under President Macron, challenges for the EU’s trade policy and the necessity of a common European stance towards China and Russia. Shortly after the second session of the Franco-German Parliamentary Assembly in Berlin, Beaune and the participants exchanged views on priorities for the cooperation between France and Germany.
Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As at the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place in a confidential setting, so as to enable a frank and constructive exchange.
