Keynote speech at GIZ
Managing Director of LADOL, Dr. Amy Jadesimi, gave the Key Note Speech at the opening plenary of the GIZ Joint Symposium 2018 Economy & Social Development, in Bad Neuenahr, Germany on 11th September 2018.
During her speech she highlighted the fact that the global turmoil and search for new operating models is an ideal time for sustainable business models and public sector policies to flourish. There have never been as many educated, healthy connected people in the world as there are now and we have definitive evidence that sustainable operating models will outcompete all others. She encouraged the 800 people in the audience to be optimistic and use this time to support and enable sustainable private sector companies in low income, high growth countries to flourish. This will lead to massive job creation and attract the trillions of dollars needed to help us meet the United Nations 17 global goals and 169 targets.
About GIZ Symposium
800 participants – colleagues from Germany and abroad, commissioning partners and guests from different backgrounds of business, politics and civil society gathered in Bad Neuenahr to consider the main theme of ‘Globalisation Revisited’.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH or GIZ in short (English: German Corporation for International Cooperation GmbH) is a German development agency headquartered in Bonn and Eschborn that provides services in the field of international development cooperation. GIZ mainly implements technical cooperation projects of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), its main commissioning party, although it also works with the private sector and other national and supranational government organizations (but usually not with non-governmental organizations) on a public benefit basis. In its activities GIZ seeks to follow the paradigm of sustainable development, which aims at balancing economic development with social inclusion and environmental protection. GIZ offers consulting and capacity building services in a wide range of areas, including management consulting, rural development, sustainable infrastructure, security and peace-building, social development, governance and democracy, environment and climate change, and economic development and employment.
GIZ was established on January 1, 2011, through the merger of three German international development organizations: the Deutscher Entwicklungsdienst (DED), the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), and Internationale Weiterbildung und Entwicklung (InWEnt). GIZ is one of the world’s largest development agencies, with a business volume in excess of EUR2.4 billion in 2016 as well as 19,506 employees spread over more than 120 countries. Additionally, in cooperation with the German Federal Employment Agency, GIZ operates the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM), an agency specialized on international cooperation activities related to global labour mobility.
