Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Peru, Tunisia, Serbia, and South Africa – the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) introduced organic producers from these countries at this year’s BIOFACH. The world’s largest trade fair for organic food took place from 14 to 17 February in Nuremberg, Germany.

More than 30 enterprises from nine countries presented their diverse range of organic produce at the joint stand shared by the IPD with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and at the respective national pavilions. This is already the fourth time that the IPD, the German initiative for promoting imports, and the GIZ have organised their joint stand for small and medium-sized enterprises from emerging and developing countries at BIOFACH.

Editorial

Everyone talks about the issues “escape  and displacement”. We realise that we have to do more in order to achieve perceivable improvements for refugees in their origin or host countries, respectively. In each project within our Vocational Education and Training Partnership Programme a German project partner and a foreign partner jointly implement the undertaking. Such Projects shall be “lighthouse projects” that are dedicated to demonstrate models how to increase the quality of VET, however mostly limited to specific professions within a specific region. Each project contributes to improving working and living perspectives of people.

Of course, the capacity of each of our German partners is limited. Therefore, we ask diverse German VET Centres to combine their forces when it comes to implement a larger project. With great success, we tested this approach in the „Employment Pact“between 2012 to 2015 in Tunisia.

In the current issue of sequaForum we present the undertaking “TAMEB” which we implement in Turkey.

On February 15, 2018 sequa starts its 1st develoPPP.de Ideas competion 2018. You want to invest in new markets in developing and emerging economies, pilot innovative technologies and contribute to sustainable development? Companies can submit their project ideas for a development partnership until March 31, 2018.

In principle, all develoPPP.de proposals on development-related issues will be considered by sequa.
