We are pleased to be able to inform our members of two opportunities with the International Trade Centre (ITC), an official UN body and a strategic partner of amfori.

Saving and Creating Jobs in Africa

In order to support European and African companies to invest in Africa and increase employment, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has put together a package of measures. Under the brand ‘Invest for Jobs, the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation’ they are offering advice, contacts and financial support. They aim to create up to 100,000 jobs and 30,000 apprenticeships and to improve working conditions in African partner countries.

The initiative will offer support in three main fields of activity: overcoming investment barriers, promoting small and medium-sized enterprises and investing in up-and-coming clusters and industries.

You could be eligible to receive support from the initiative if you source from one of the eight following African countries:
