Amb. Giovanni Xuereb
Amb. Giovanni Xuereb received his doctorate degree in Law from the University of Malta in 1988, and continued his studies as post-graduate in Advanced European Legal Studies at the College d’Europe in Bruges, Belgium.
Starting out at the Permanent Representation of Malta to the EU in Brussels, he later worked as an Associate Lawyer in charge of the EU Law and International Financial Services Department between 1989 and 1992 in Malta. An adviser on EU law at the Maltese Foreign Trade Company, and Head of the Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee, and a lecturer at the Insitute for European Studies at the University of Malta, he specializes in external relations of his country. During his first Ambassadorship, Xuereb was assigned to the Kingdom of Spain between 2019 and 2020.
Amb. Xuereb was born in 1964, and is married. He has been serving as Malta’s Ambassador since September 16th 2020. Besides his native Maltese, he speaks English, Italian, French and Spanish.
Diplomatic relations were established between Germany and Malta in 1965, shortly after the country gained independence. Since Malta’s accession to the European Union on May 1st 2004, the traditionally close and amicable contacts between the two countries have become even more intensive. This is underlined by the mutual visits at the highest political level.
