Visit to Australia by Germany's Foreign Minister

  • Media release

Today I will welcome the Federal Foreign Minister of Germany, Annalena Baerbock, to Adelaide.

Australia and Germany are close friends and trusted partners. Our relationship is underpinned by shared values, including our commitment to the international rules-based order.

Australia welcomes Germany’s expanded engagement and interest in our region, and this visit is an opportunity to discuss greater cooperation in the Indo-Pacific, as well as broader geopolitical challenges, including in Europe and the Middle East.

Our two countries are working together to tackle cyber threats and climate change, to embrace the green energy transition, build supply chain resilience, and improve gender equality.

Today we will mark the return of four significant cultural heritage items to the Kaurna People from the collection of the Grassi Museum in Leipzig.

I look forward to our continued engagement with Germany as a key global partner and as a close friend of Australia.
