Under the patronage of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK), the association German Water Partnership e. V. (GWP) in collaboration with the German Economic Delegation in Côte d'Ivoire (AHK Côte d'Ivoire) and the African Water and Sanitation Association (AfWASA) recently organized a business trip to the water supply and wastewater treatment sector in Côte d'Ivoire. 

The aim of the trip was to promote German capacity building in the water supply and wastewater treatment sector in Côte d'Ivoire, and to explore business and partnership opportunities with Ivorian companies.

The visit included a symposium on the main business and financing opportunities in the water sector in Côte d'Ivoire. It enabled German companies to present their projects to a network of Ivorian decision-makers and entrepreneurs, government authorities, multipliers and sector associations. The conference also provided an opportunity to promote German environmental technologies, which significantly reduce the operating and maintenance costs of urban and industrial water and effluent management systems, and offer opportunities for optimizing waste resources.

In addition to the symposium, participants from German companies benefited from a program consisting of technical visits to relevant projects, as well as meetings with decision-makers in the field of efficient water management.

The mission was an excellent opportunity to establish business contacts and generate opportunities for cooperation and technology transfer between German and Ivorian companies.

It should be noted that the event was attended by a number of distinguished guests, including H.E. Mr Mattias Veltin, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Mr Fidèle Béhibro, Technical Advisor to the Ministry of Hydraulics, Sanitation and Hygiene, representing Minister Bouaké Fofana, and Dr Irina Kerner of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection.
