Luxembourg by (

Tsjekkia gjenåpnet sist uke sin ambassade i Luxembourg by, etter at den forrige regjeringen la ned ambassaden i 2012. Tsjekkias utenriksminister Lubomir Zaoralek var til stede ved åpningen av ambassaden sammen sin luxembourgiske kollega Jean Asselborn, melder utenriksdepartementet i Praha.

Tsjekkia ville opne opp igjen ambassaden for å styrke de historiske og økonomiske forbindelsene mellom de to EU-landene.

Luxembourg sin andel utgjør en betydelig andel av utenlandske investeringer i Tsjekkia, som er spesielt interessert i et nærere samarbeid med Luxembourg innen IT, forskning og miljøvennlig teknologi.

Tsjekkisk eksport til Luxembourg kom opp i 161,5 millioner euro – 1,4 milliarder kroner, i 2014.

The Czech Republic last week reopened its embassy in Luxembourg City, after the previous Czech government closed Down the mission in 2012.

Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek was present at the reopening of the embassy along with his Luxembourgois counterpart Jean Asselborn, according to the Czech Foreign Ministry.

The Czech Republic wanted to reopen the embassy to strengthen the historical and economic relations between the two EU countries.

Luxembourg‘s share represents a significant proportion of foreign investment in the Czech Republic, who are particularly interested in closer cooperation with Luxembourg in IT, research and environmentally friendly technologies.

Czech exports to Luxembourg reached 161.5 million euros in 2014.
