Will the First Minister state whether the Welsh Government have bought or rented the 2 new offices in Germany, how much money has been invested in them so far, and explain how many staff will be there and provide the title of each position accordingly?

The Welsh Government offices in Germany are in the British Embassy in Berlin and the British Consulate General in Dusseldorf


Running costs, which include the FCO platform charge, are published annually in the State of the Estate Report.


At present there is one person based in Berlin, as the Welsh Government’s Head of Germany and the Welsh Government is in the process of appointing a Senior Business Development Manager to be based in the Dusseldorf office.
