Support to trade and Regional Economic Integration (REI) has been a key element of German cooperation with African partners for several years. As such, support to regional and continental integration initiatives is a core pillar of German policy strategies such as the Marshall Plan with Africa of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). In this ongoing project we are working with the GIZ team to develop a series of success stories that will demonstrate the impacts and successes of REI across the individual regions and programs. Stories of personal and more general interest are key to communicating in this project. By interviewing key stakeholders and coordinating with the pan-African team on key messaging and audiences as well as channels, the stories will show a continent-wide picture of successes and impacts in regional integration and trade.
