The German Deputy Consul General of Chicago paid a visit to Rochelle Wednesday. It’s the latest development in a trade mission initiated by Gov. Bruce Rauner with Germany and Poland.
Dr. Andreas Goetze was pleasantly surprised by the city’s infrastructure, particularly when it came to transportation, and said the visit fits well into the consulate’s work.
"Politics plays a certain role, because we can work on the framework for economic activities," he said.
Goetze says the visit is another part of his country’s involvement in the state.
