The team later had a breakfast meeting with Günter Nooke, Africa envoy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
On his second day Raila had a lunch meeting hosted by George Schmidt, Africa Envoy of the German Foreign Office where he held discussion on partnership for growth.
On Thursday the former PM toured Siemens Group of Companies where he met the Vice President.
The Cord leader had a dinner hosted by Secretary General of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Dr. Roland Schmidt “where we discussed a number of issues and possible partnership.”
“We seek to further deepen business and development relationships between the international community and the Counties back home. This forms the core basis of our efforts in Germany,” Raila said.
The team is already back in the country.
