Further Guidance for Ivanka Trump’s Visit to Germany for the W20 (Women’s 20) Summit in Berlin

Ivanka Trump, First Daughter and Assistant to the President, will visit Berlin, Germany on April 25th at the direct invitation of Chancellor Angela Merkel to participate in the W20 Summit. Ivanka will join a panel conversation with other women leaders regarding Women’s Economic Empowerment and Entrepreneurship.

Ivanka’s visit to Berlin stemmed from the roundtable on Vocational Education and Workforce Development she hosted with Chancellor Merkel at the White House in March. With education and skills training being central to Ivanka and Chancellor Merkel’s agenda, Ivanka will visit Siemens Technik Akademie for an interactive tour and discussion with program apprentices. In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, Ivanka will visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin. Ivanka will also stop by the United States Embassy in Berlin to meet Embassy staff and their families.
