The UK and Germany have a steadfast friendship and a shared outlook on many issues. Our scientists, innovators and industrialists work together every day to make the world a better place.
That is why the Prime Minister will set out new joint ventures with Chancellor Merkel to deepen the UK-Germany relationship, organising annual joint meetings of the UK and German cabinets, establishing a new UK-German cultural dialogue and creating a new academic medal to support leading British and German women scientists.
Over the 16 years of Chancellor Merkel’s tenure the UK-Germany relationship has been re-energised and re-invigorated, and these new measures will strengthen our collaboration with Germany on global challenges as we build back better together.
