Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Svenja Schulze and Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Hubertus Heil announced a realignment of Germany’s development cooperation relating to migration during their trip to Ghana in February. The aim is to ensure safe, regular and orderly migration from which all sides benefit.
Promoting regular migration
The team of advisors at the centre in Accra will continue to support returnees from Germany, Europe and other countries with rebuilding a future for themselves in Ghana. But in future, the aim is also to make the centre more of a contact point for people who want to migrate regularly to Germany, Europe or within their region.
“The intention is that the centre should present a modern, holistic view of migration, whereby Germany not only trains and wins workers for our job market, but also propels economic development and the creation of jobs within Ghana”, said Development Minister Svenja Schulze.
