ARISE Plus Cambodia is the national Cambodian component of the ARISE Plus Regional Programme that aims to support greater connectivity and economic integration between Cambodia and the rest of ASEAN through implementing the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2025 and strengthening institutional capacity. It is co-financed by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ. The Ministry of Commerce is the political partner for this project, which works closely also with the Ministry of Economy and Finance (especially the General Department of Customs and Excise), along with Cambodia’s private sector and business associations. The project is commissioned from January 2019 until June 2023, with a budget of 9.35 million Euro.
As a service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education work, we are dedicated to shaping a future worth living around the world. We have over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment promotion, energy and the environment, and peace and security. The diverse expertise of our federal enterprise is in demand around the globe – from the German Government, European Union institutions, the United Nations, the private sector, and governments of other countries. We work with businesses, civil society actors and research institutions, fostering successful interaction between development policy and other policy fields and areas of activity. Our main commissioning party is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The commissioning parties and cooperation partners all place their trust in GIZ, and we work with them to generate ideas for political, social and economic change, to develop these into concrete plans and to implement them. Since we are a public-benefit federal enterprise, German and European values are central to our work. Together with our partners in national governments worldwide and cooperation partners from the worlds of business, research and civil society, we work flexibly to deliver effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions. The registered offices of GIZ are in Bonn and Eschborn. In 2021, we generated a business volume of around EUR 3.7 billion. Our 24,977 employees, almost 70 per cent of whom are national staff, work in around 120 countries. As a recognised development service provider, we currently have 431 development workers in action in partner countries. Furthermore, in 2021, the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM), which is run jointly by GIZ and the German Federal Employment Agency, placed 177 integrated experts and 466 returning experts with local employers in our partner countries, or provided them with financial support, advice or other services.* *Personnel and business figures as at 31 December 2021
