Guten Tag from Dresden, Germany!
As Chair of the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA), it is a tremendous opportunity to visit another country and promote the great synergies between Massachusetts and Germany. Like Massachusetts, Germany values a world-class education and its innovation economy is thriving.
This week, I will be visiting Dresden (the capital of Saxony, Germany), Leipzig (the largest city in Saxony), and Berlin (the capital of Germany and one of the largest cities in Europe). I will be leading a delegation of lieutenant governors with the NLGA. During the week, I plan to share some highlights along the way as I travel throughout Germany.
Stay tuned for more!
