The three main German development organisations working in Ethiopia will now operate from under one roof following the inauguration of the so-called German House in the Kazainchis area of Addis Ababa. The structure, built by Ethiopian companies at a cost of 12 million birr, houses the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), the German Development Bank (KfW) and the German Development Office (DED). Speaking at the opening ceremony in mid-June, the German ambassador to Ethiopia Dr. Claas Dieter Knoop said that the accommodation of important German development agencies in the house will facilitate a coordinated approach to solving the development challenges of Ethiopia. Under a cooperation agreement between the German and Ethiopian governments GTZ, KfW and DED work together in the fields of food security, vocational training, strengthening government institutions and the construction of low-cost housing among other things.
