IPD now: What we have achieved so far...

Read about what we have achieved so far in our partner countries, what we are currently working on, and how companies in the European import economy are benefiting from our work in our biannual IPD UPDATE report.

Issue 1 // 08.01.2024

New logo, new partner countries, new sectors

IPD is part of the newly founded development policy network "Partners in Transformation - Business & Development Network". From January, 2024, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has been bundling its programs for economic actors under this new brand. IPD therefore has a new logo. And that's not the only change: we are continuing to grow.

Issue 02 // 17.08.2023

Women entrepreneurs in the IPD programme

In this IPD UPDATE, get to know some of the female entrepreneurs of the IPD programme. Learn from their examples about the opportunities that lay in the economic participation of women.

Special Issue // 16.03.2023

Special programme Ukraine

IPD expanded its engagement in Ukraine and launched a special programme on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). We put Ukrainian suppliers in touch with European trading partners through targeted matchmaking measures.
