Bernhard Schlagheck is appointed as new ambassador of Federal Republic of Germany in Pakistan. He took the charge of German missions Pakistan in August 2019. He is the successor of most popular German ambassador to Pakistan ‘Martin Kobler‘. I think every Pakistani knows Martin Kobler. He was one of the most active and popular German ambassador in Pakistan.
Bernhard Schlagheck born in Mönchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia in 1956. He worked on several posts and represent Germany in different countries from 1991 to 2019. Before appointing in Pakistan, he was the ambassador of German embassy Abuja, Nigeria from 2016 to 2019.
It will be a challenge, but we hope that new ambassador will also keep the momentum set by previous ambassador. He will remain active and culture friendly same like Martin Kobler. We are also hopeful that he will bring friendly relationship between Germany and Pakistan to new heights.
Martin Kobler did a fantastic job to promote German higher education in Pakistan. He also took high interest to resolve the problems of the students who want to study in Germany. But students are still facing huge problem because of the new appointment system. We are hoping that new ambassador will give attention and make appointment system more easy and convenient.
Process of job search visa is also very difficult for Pakistanis. We are also expecting that he will make job search visa easy and accessible for Pakistanis. So skilled Pakistani youth will be able to access the German job market.
