Private Economy and Development Cooperation (CIM-AHK Program)
The targeted placement of integrated experts by the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM)brings benefits both for foreign trade promotion and German development cooperation.
The aim of the ExperTS-Programme is to link the activities of the German private sector in developing and emerging countries more closely to the objectives of Germany’s development policies. To this end, CIM places experts in areas such as energy consulting, technology transfer and vocational education at the German Chambers of Commerce (AHKs) around the world. As employees of the German Chambers of Commerce, Delegations of German Industry and Commerce and bilateral business associations, they advise companies on partnership opportunities with the German development cooperation.
The ExperTS-Programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
