The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and KfW Development Bank have been working in Kosovo on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) since 1999.

GIZ advises and supports Kosovo in its efforts to achieve political stability and democracy based on the rule of law. As part of this process, programmes which boost the economy, improve the education system, build a decentralised public administration and reduce youth unemployment are also receiving support. The overarching long-term goal is Kosovo’s accession to the European Union (EU).

KfW Development Bank has been assisting Kosovo to establish an efficient and sustainable power supply, upgrade municipal infrastructure and promote small enterprises, so that they can evolve into an engine to power the Kosovan economy.

Thus, the German Development Cooperation will celebrate this year its 20-year anniversary in Kosovo. The German Embassy to Kosovo, GIZ and KfW together will work in coordination regarding all festivities during the year.

A series of events are planned to happen around September-October 2019, therefore, we are going to look for designers or creative agencies, who want to participate with their concepts and create an identity for this purpose.
