Our portfolio includes policy advise, technical expertise, knowledge transfer, capacity building and organizational 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.

As a federally owned company, GIZ possesses an excellent access to German public institutions and is commissioned by a wide range of German federal ministries. In China we work for various clients, ranging from German federal and federal state authorities, the European Commission, to the Asian Development Bank and especially to Chinese public and private sector clients. During decades of successful technical cooperation in China, GIZ has developed close ties with Chinese and German government institutions. Building upon these networks, we offer GIZ’s outstanding solutions also to our clients from the Chinese public sector and to Chinese and German private companies.
