The Munich Security Conference on February 18-20, 2022 will be held in full-time format for the first time in two years, the DPA agency reports, citing the chairman of the conference on Wolfgang Ischinger.
The number of participants will reportedly be limited due to the coronavirus pandemic. Ischinger expects that the future new government of Germany will present its foreign policy agenda at the conference.
“I am firmly convinced that the future federal chancellor will want to use the opportunity to speak there. The same can be said about the foreign minister and defense minister, as well as other members of the cabinet,” the politician said.
According to the chairman of the conference, the need for personal communication at events of this format is great, since it is often about “delicate issues”.
This year’s Munich conference was held in the format of an online event.
