Wednesday, 8 January 2020, Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany: Together with other members of the state government, Premier Dr. Reiner Haseloff welcomed representatives from over 40 states to the traditional New Year’s reception for the Diplomatic and Consular Corps in Magdeburg.

In his speech, Premier Dr. Haseloff expressed his hope that international cooperation would bring the idea of peace and good cooperation between peoples and nations to the world. He emphasised that 2019 had been a successful year for Saxony-Anhalt, referring to numerous investments, also from abroad. But there had also been events such as the attack in Halle (Saale), which is still affecting people and must lead to more efforts against hatred and violence.
