Czech centre to open in Düsseldorf to bring interests under one roof

Amid numerous closings of Czech embassies around the world, plans have been announced to establish a Czech centre in the German town of Düsseldorf in the autumn. The centre will house a Czech consulate, promotional office and branches of the agencies CzechTrade, CzechInvest and CzechTourism in what is envisioned as a sort of local headquarters for Czech trade, culture and tourism in an important industrial area in Germany to replace more expensive individual buildings. Germany is one of the Czech Republic’s most vital partners for trade.
