Partnership with the East African Business Council

In 2014, the BDI formulated its first comprehensive Africa strategy, entitled BDI Strategy Sub-Saharan Africa: Africa – Continent of Opportunities. The strategy highlights the opportunities that the continent holds for German industry and offers constructive perspectives. The BDI’s activities in this area primarily focus on West and East Africa.

Therefore, the BDI initiated a chamber and association partnership project with the East African Business Council (EABC) in April 2015. The goal is to support regional economic integration in East Africa and help to strengthen networks between German and East African businesses and policymakers.
