the Franco-German Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation

Élysée Treaty: 55 years of Franco-German friendship

It has been the foundation of the friendship with our western neighbor for 55 years: the Franco-German Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation, in short: the Elysée Treaty of January 22, 1963. The treaty brought about the fundamental reorganization of the Franco-German relations, regular consultations and much more. There is no other state with which Germany maintains such a strongly institutionalized partnership. A little known fact is this: the delegation that traveled to Paris to President de Gaulle with Chancellor Adenauer forgot to bring the usual German paper for the contract. This is why the German version of the contract, too, is written on French paper. Moreover, a seal was specifically made for the Chancellor, who, as was usual at the time, sealed documents with his coat of arms.

German Institutions in Ireland

German-Irish relations are close, friendly and vibrant. Three hundred German companies employ 20,000 people in Ireland, over half a million Germans visit this Ireland each year, and the German-Irish Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the Goethe Institut work hard every day to make those relations even closer.
