Who We Are
The wide range of services offered by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH are based on a wealth of regional and technical expertise and on tried and tested management know-how. We are a German federal enterprise and offer workable, sustainable and effective solutions in political, economic and social change processes.
GIZ operates throughout Germany and in more than 120 countries worldwide. Our registered offices are in Bonn and Eschborn. We have 19,506 staff members around the globe, almost 70 % of whom are employed locally as national personnel. GIZ’s business volume was over EUR 2.6 billion in the year 2017.
What We Do
With more than 30 years of experience in Sino-German technical cooperation, GIZ works within the framework of the Comprehensive Sino-German Strategic Partnership for the mutual benefit of both countries. Our services extend far beyond classical development cooperation. GIZ thus acknowledges China’s new role in the global architecture. The protection of global public goods is the focal point of our work, which also contributes to the establishment of fair trade relations between China and its partners in the region, as well as Germany and Europe. GIZ in China provides technical expertise to underpin numerous bilateral political dialogues between China and Germany.
We provide support for forging sustainable networks between stakeholders from the world of politics, business and society. Our portfolio includes policy advice, technical expertise, knowledge transfer, capacity building and organisational development support in those areas where German know-how and technologies are world-leading. We provide our services through experienced German, international and Chinese experts as well as German partner institutions.
Who We Work For
In China, GIZ operates primarily on behalf of the German government. In 2017 GIZ was commissioned by seven German Federal Ministries. In addition we work for German federal states, foundations, the European Commission and increasingly for clients from the Chinese public sector as well as the Chinese and German private sector.
