The BMZ has invited the German chambers and associations to become involved in the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation. They can propose their own projects, provided they meet the specific requirements of the special initiative and contribute to the objectives of the special initiative – namely the promotion of jobs and investments. PartnerAfrika projects basically follow the concept of sequa’s partnership programmes KVP and BBP. sequa is responsible to the BMZ for the implementation and quality management of the PartnerAfrica projects.
Under the Invest for Jobs brand, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has put together a package of measures to support the investment activities that have a high impact on employment in Africa. The Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation - the official title - offers comprehensive advice, contacts and financial support to overcome investment barriers.
The developmental objective is to create good jobs and training opportunities and to improve working conditions in the partner countries. The Special Initiative thus is assisting with the implementation of the G20 investment partnership Compact with Africa and the Marshall Plan with Africa.
