Merger agreement for GTZ, DED and InWEnt signed

On 16 December 2010, the merger of the governmental development organisations GTZ, DED and InWEnt into Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was completed in Berlin. The merger agreement was ceremonially signed by the three organisations' managers. And German Development Minister Dirk Niebel and Ministry of Finance State Secretary Jörg Asmussen signed the Articles of Association for the new organisation, which will be 100 per cent owned by the German government. GIZ became operational on 1 January. It will combine the competency and long-standing experience of GTZ, DED and InWEnt. The new agency is active in more than 130 countries worldwide. It is headquartered in Bonn and Eschborn, and it is also represented in almost all German federal states. The agency has some 16,800 staff members.
