GIZ opens new regional office in East London
By Marlene de Witt
Dr Eduard Westreicher, Development Councillor at the German Embassy in Pretoria, and Mrs Christiane Kalle, GIZ Country Director for South Africa and Lesotho, on 22 May 2014 officially opened the new GIZ regional office in East London in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. This is the second regional office in the province – the first was opened in Port Elizabeth in 2012.
These offices are meant to provide support to the almost 30 staff members living and working for GIZ in the province. It serves to create a space where colleagues can get together, where partner institutions can be invited to meet, and where partners and other interested parties can find information on GIZ's work in the province.
