What does Invest for Jobs do?

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 German, European and African companies in investment activities that have a high impact on employment in Africa.

The development objective is to team up with companies to create up to 100,000 jobs and training opportunities for 30,000 people, and to improve working conditions in the African partner countries.
