State Representative Deanne Mazzochi recently met with Wolfgang Mossinger, the new German Consul General in Chicago. Mossinger serves as the German Consul General for the entire midwest, a total of 13 states. Consul Generals serve to foster relations and commercial affairs between two nations. Mossinger took over the post earlier this year in July.
Rep. Mazzochi met with Mossinger at the German consulate on North Michigan Ave., to exchange ideas on education, international trade, and to discuss some of the benefits Illinois has to offer to foreign companies doing business in Illinois. Rep. Mazzochi touted Illinois’ benefits, such as a strong manufacturing base, a skilled workforce, and respected educational institutions.
