German envoy hosts World Cup event


Michael Geier, German Ambassador to Seoul, hosted a reception on Feb. 27 for the success of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, which starts in less than 100 days.
The reception was held at the Hofbruhaus-Seoul, an authentic German beerhouse in Gangnam, southern Seoul, attended by around 500 guests, including Mr. and Mrs. Geier, the governor of Gyeonggi province Sohn Hak-kyu, and officials from the Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
In a speech, Mr. Geier said, “Like there are great Korean restaurants in Heidelberg, Germany, there are many nice German beerhouses in Seoul,” and “I hope that relations between Germany and Korea will improve thanks to the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.” A traditional German brass band also performed.
