New STRING Chair: Dr. Annette Tabbara
24-04-2018
With a new federal government in Germany earlier this year, STRING bid farewell to its Chair Wolfgang Schmidt who followed former First Mayor Olaf Scholz, now Federal Minister of Finance and Vice Chancellor, to the Federal Ministry of Finance as State Secretary in Berlin. STRING can therefore give a warm welcome to his successor and the new Chair of STRING, Dr. Annette Tabbara.

The law graduate has worked for ten years in various positions at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs before joining the Federal Chancellery in 2015. At the Chancellery, Annette Tabbara was Head of Staff for the Minister of State at the Federal Chancellor and Head of Task Force of the Office of the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration.

Annette Tabbara is pleased to take over the work as chair for STRING as part of her work with European Affairs.

'Hamburg has close ties to its Scandinavian neighbours to the North and I am looking forward to learning more about our cross-border collaboration from our friends in STRING'.
