Kurt Bodewig Bundesminister a.D.

Honorary Consul of the Republic of Lithuania

I was called as the honorary consul of the Republic of Lithuania in 2011. Already connected to this country as the head of the advisory board of the German-Lithuanian Forum for many years, it was an honor for me to serve for Lithuania in Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Schleswig-Holstein. The encouraging of Business Connections between those countries as well as politics is very important to me. This happened for example in the window of the EU-council presidency election in 2013. S.E. Ambassador Matulionis presented his goals and perspectives on September 10th, 2013 in Hamburg. Beforehand, we had a workshop about maritime economy and backcountry connections together with representatives of the Lithuanian railroad and the port of Klaipeda.

In 2008, I received the Medal as officer of the Legion of Honor through the Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus.
