SENATE CHANCELLERY HH
As part of the state government, The Senate Chancellery of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has the status of the highest state authority. It is under the mandate of the First Mayor and the President of the Senate. The State Chancellery is divided into the State Office, the Press Office, the IT and Digitalisation Department and the Planning Staff for the Office of the Senate. The Hanse-Office in Brussels is part of the Department for EU Affairs in the Staatsamt and consequently – as is the Hamburg representation in Berlin – part of the Hamburg Senate Chancellery.
