AHPI as a partner in the BMWK manager training programme

„Fit for Partnership with Germany“

In 2014, AHP International was selected by the German Development Agency (GIZ) as a partner for the implementation of the BMWK Manager Training Programme commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and implemented since 1998.

This element of German foreign economic policy with a partnership approach prepares managers, primarily from emerging and transition countries in Eastern Europe, Asia, Central America and North Africa, for business initiation and economic cooperation with German companies.

Since 1998, more than 17,000 managers and decision-makers from 17 countries have participated in the programme.

The Manager Training Programme offers participating executives the opportunity to get to know the German market, establish business relations with German companies and develop long-term partnerships. The specially developed training also strengthens the participants’ management skills. In company visits and discussions with German managers, examples of good business practices are conveyed. Direct business contacts and negotiations make it possible to conclude business deals.

On average, a group stays in Germany for a fortnight and the 20 or so participants from one or more sectors and countries have contact with at least 60 German, mainly medium-sized companies, which can make promising contacts “on their doorstep” with managers from four continents and numerous sectors.

Decisive for the success of the programme is the right mix of competence transfer and opportunities for business initiation, for which AHP International, as one of the implementing partners in Germany, is responsible as an interface. AHP International implements the programme throughout Germany with its training partners.

RLP Vietnam

Management Programme for Young Professionals and Managers from Vietnam

The Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Economics offers companies from Rhineland-Palatinate a new management programme with Vietnamese junior executives. For the host companies, this is a unique opportunity to get to know Vietnam intensively and to establish sustainable economic and business contacts there. You too can take part in the exchange of experience!

In a first step, the young executives from Vietnam are trained in a three-week professional course. They receive in-depth training in business organisation and management, human resource management, marketing and foreign trade. Afterwards, a seven-week exchange of experience on site, in a Rhineland-Palatinate company, offers the young executives from Vietnam the opportunity to familiarise themselves with innovative technologies and processes.

For the host Rhineland-Palatinate companies, the programme offers the opportunity to establish or intensify special personal economic and business contacts with Vietnam. With the support of a young Vietnamese manager, the German companies find easier access to the Vietnamese economy and can use the programme to explore the market or establish cooperations.

Vietnam has experienced strong economic growth in recent years and even the strongest economic growth in ten years with 8% in 2022. Economic output is also forecast to grow by over 6% in 2023. With imports of around 147 million Euros and exports of just under 155 million euros in 2021, the country is one of Rhineland-Palatinate’s most important trading partners in South East Asia.

You too can take advantage of the opportunity to establish contacts with Vietnam and gain insights into its business culture by participating in the exchange of experiences for your company.

The knowledge sharing period in Rhineland-Palatinate begins on September 4 and ends on November 10 2023. To ensure that the profile and expectations of both partners fit optimally, all participants undergo an appropriate selection procedure. The host Rhineland-Palatinate companies do not incur any costs.

Companies interested in hosting a young manager from Vietnam for seven weeks, as well as companies interested in offering a one-day company visit during the introductory phase, can contact Dr. Linda von Delhaes-Guenther.
