Bavaria in London

Office of the Free State of Bavaria in the United Kingdom

The opening of an office of the Free State of Bavaria in the United Kingdom (UK) is aimed to promote and expand cooperation with the UK after Brexit. The mission of the office will be to further intensify relations between Bavaria and the United Kingdom in business, science, innovation, education youth exchange and culture.

Bavarian-British relations

Bavarian-British relations.

Bavaria and Great Britain have strong historical, cultural and economic ties. Even after leaving the European Union (EU) the UK remains an important partner for Bavaria, with whom we share common values and many mutual interests.

With a trade volume of over eleven billion euros the United Kingdom is a key trading partner for Bavaria. But we see great potential also in other fields, such as science and innovation, education, youth exchange and culture, where cooperation can be deepened even further.

The Office of the Free State of Bavaria in the United Kingdom is based in London.

The political course for the Bavarian Office was set in April 2019 by the Bavarian Council of Ministers.

Since institutionalised cooperation between the United Kingdom and the EU has ceased as a result of Brexit, bilateral cooperation now is to be intensified by greater commitment also on the part of the Bavarian State Government.

Under the leadership of Bavaria’s State Chancellery, the Office has the mission to promote cooperation between Bavarian and British players in a wide range of fields of activity, thereby expanding and further deepening the close relations with the United Kingdom.

One of the central tasks of the office is to promote economic exchange after Brexit.

Another important aspect is cultivating Bavarian-British relations in culture, education and youth exchange as well as in science and innovation.
