Economic development and employment

Economic growth is a fundamental requirement for the development of a country. For companies to invest and an economy to grow, stable environments, efficient institutions, functioning markets and access to sustainable financial services are all required. GIZ assists its partner countries in improving their economic framework conditions, removing bureaucratic obstacles and establishing suitable promotional structures.

Through dialogue between public and private actors, we develop comparative advantages and initiate multisectoral economic flows. We advise on economic policy and work with our partners to develop solutions for private sector promotion, and local, poverty-oriented financial systems to give everyone an opportunity to share the benefits of economic growth.

We realise that economic growth is created by people. This is why we begin with viable vocational training in order to enhance the right competences for dynamic economic development, tailored to needs and with strong practical relevance. Integrating as many population groups as possible into the economy is the only way to ensure that growth has a broad effect and is sustainable.

With its know-how, GIZ makes an active contribution to the full realisation of its partners’ economic potential in a way which is not only profitable but also socially and ecologically acceptable. We create opportunities. For all.
