When you visit the new and improved website of the Federal Office of German you now see three beautiful pictures of a Somali girl, a matatu in Mombasa and a Turtle in sandy beach of the Seychelles. The picture is a representation of the 3 countries the consulate will continue to serving.
The new website comes weeks after Germany got its new Foreign Federal Minister Heiko Maas. The 51 year old took office in 14 March, 2018 and will serve in the fourth cabinet of Angela Merkel who is serving her fourth term as the Chancellor for the european nation. Users of the new website will now be able to read and be updated about the Federal Minister through the blog section and also will be able to get exclusive news and updates about Germany.

And at the same time we thank @sigmargabriel for steering Germany and the Foreign Office through an eventful time! pic.twitter.com/VCqOtD9RzM
