Germany names new ambassador to Thailand


Germany’s ambassador to Vietnam has been tapped to head the country’s embassy in Thailand.

Rolf Peter Gottfried Schulze, 58, succeeds Hanns Schumacher, who had been Germany’s ambassador to Thailand since 2008.

A member of Germany’s diplomatic service since 1980, Schulze has worked in embassies in Trinidad & Tobago, Japan, Spain, China and Vietnam, where his term expired in July.

Schulze is still on travel, but is expected to take up his duties in the capital soon.
