The German Government and in particular the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) welcome private sector engagement in developing countries and emerging economies, and support a whole range of programmes and initiatives - from project support in a 'development partnership' to tailored funding options and access to networks of suitable personnel. The Business Scouts for Development at RETech can advise you on these and other offerings that will help you to put your activities in developing countries and emerging economies on a sustainable footing.
As a development policy advisor, the Business Scouts for Development supports members of the German RETech Partnership by:
- Advising on the selection of support, funding and cooperation instruments available through German development cooperation and assisting with the submission of applications
- Forging links to international and local networks in German development cooperation, development programmes and projects in partner countries, and local companies and consultants
- Providing information on partner countries in development cooperation, for example on political and economic conditions and country-specific opportunities for working with development actors
