Welcome to Mr. Paul Steinmetz, Consul General in New York

Published Thursday August 19 2021

Dear Friends, Moien! 

Following my appointment as Luxembourg’s Consul General in New York and Executive Director of the Luxembourg Trade & Investment Office for the East Coast, I am honoured to serve both the Luxembourg citizens in the United States and the friends of the Grand Duchy, be they current or former expatriates, investors or business partners. I am especially delighted to take up this position as I was born in NYC. My father worked in sales for the Luxembourg steel maker Arbed and though I don’t have many memories of that time I have always felt a connection which will perhaps be revived. I am joined by my wife and our two kids, and will arrive in New York on 22nd August. The Grand Duchy owes its success to the easy accessibility of its decision-makers and a pro-business attitude. This will also be my motto in New York. After promoting my country’s interests in Britain, India, Japan, China and Greece, I am keen to hear new ideas and discuss common projects. 

See you soon

Paul Steinmetz
