What We Do
With more than 30 years of experience in Sino-German technical cooperation, GIZ works within the framework of the Comprehensive Sino-German Strategic Partnership for the mutual benefit of both countries. Our portfolio includes policy advice, technical expertise, knowledge transfer, capacity building and organisational development support in those areas where German know-how and technologies are world-leading. We provide our services through experienced German, international and Chinese experts as well as German partner institutions.
Who We Work For
In China, GIZ operates primarily on behalf of the German government and is currently commissioned by a number of German federal ministries – such as the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and
Development, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. We also work for German federal states, the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank as well as clients from the Chinese public sector. During decades of successful technical cooperation with China, GIZ has developed close ties with Chinese and German government institutions. Building upon these networks, we also offer solutions for private sector clients in China to address sustainability issues.
