California Governor and former Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger said he would be interested in opening CeBIT 2009 together with German Chancellor Merkel.
California will be the partner country of CeBIT 2009. California is not a sovereign country, but when it comes to economy it can be found amongst the largest countries.
Governor Schwarzenegger did not confirm his trip to CeBIT 2009 yet. CeBIT 2009 will be taking place in March 2009 in Hannover, Germany.
