Bonn office

Federal Ministry for Eco­nom­ic Co­op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment (BMZ) in Bonn

Our main office

The main office of the Federal Min­is­try for Econo­­mic Co­op­er­ation and De­vel­op­ment (BMZ) is in Bonn.

When it was decided to move the seat of Ger­man gov­ern­ment from Bonn to Berlin, the 1994 Berlin/Bonn Act stipulated that, by way of com­pen­sa­tion, the Bonn region would be developed into a "centre of de­vel­op­ment policy, national, inter­national and supra­national bodies".

Since then, more than 150 international orga­ni­sa­tions and NGOs have set up offices in the Bonn region, including several United Nations bodies. Also the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit gGmbH (GIZ) is based in Bonn. Since 2003, Germany's world broadcasting service "Deutsche Welle" has also been headquartered in Bonn, further adding to the city's international character.

About 75 per cent of BMZ staff work at the Bonn office.
