Germany and Pakistan have been partners in sustainable development since 1957. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has been working in Pakistan since 1963 and has maintained a country office in the capital, Islamabad, since 1990. Currently 330 national and 35 international employees and 1 integrated specialist are working in the country (as of 31.12.2018).
Working on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), GIZ’s activities focus on the following priority areas:
GIZ provides support for thousands of apprentices and vocational education institutions to enable them to meet the demands of the labour market.
