Final preparations are underway in Hamburg for the OSCE Ministerial Council Meeting on Thursday and Friday. Then, Hamburg will be the centre of world media attention following a decision by Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, chair of the OSCE this year. He chose the city as the venue based on Hamburg’s “cosmopolitanism, tolerance and international networking”. Steinmeier noted: “We wish to build bridges, boost dialogue and promote greater inclusion of civil society in the OSCE’s discussion and decision-making processes.” Hamburg is exactly the right place for the summit.
