sequaForum 2019 A01: KVP/BBP Tag


If the economy is doing well, people are doing well too! Especially in developing countries it can be observed that this guiding principle unfortunately also applies vice versa. A reliable legal framework, well-trained skilled workers, functioning transport routes, fast internet, accessible procurement and sales markets and many other favourable framework conditions are necessary so that companies can prosper and hire employees.

BMOs represent the interests of companies and promote the positive development of framework conditions for companies. They are equally close to political actors and companies. But only strong, i.e. efficient, professional and economically stable chambers and associations can be truly effective lobbyists. This is why there is the KVP programme, in which our German partners have carried out around 300 KVP projects worldwide since 1991.

A project phase usually lasts three years. This may sound long, but it is short in terms of altering and changing structures sustainably. Changing structures is complex and always poses new challenges for actors. We at sequa and our German project management agencies need external impulses again and again, for example through the KVP/BBP Day. 

This is what this issue of sequaForum is all about!
