Investment and Technology Promotion Office Germany
( UNIDO ITPO Germany
ITPO Germany contributes to UNIDO’s mandate of bringing about inclusive and sustainable industrial development by assisting investors in their investment and technology related interactions with potential partners from developing countries and economies in transition.
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the specialized UN agency that works to promote and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) towards eradicating poverty. UNIDO’s vision is amplified by its 2013 Lima Declaration and strengthened by the global mandate the organization received through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and especially the Sustainable Development Goal 9, where the international community calls to “Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”. Overall, the organization aims to foster sustained economic growth, to create real income and safe jobs for all.
In doing so, investment promotion and the transfer of sustainable technologies have been at the forefront of these efforts, and the Investment and Technology Promotion Office in Bonn participates in this endeavor by fostering mutually beneficiary industrial cooperation between enterprises in Germany and in developing countries. It does so by assisting in the identification, evaluation and negotiation of joint investment projects, and keeps a portfolio of investment opportunities.
