GPQI - Dialogues for Innovation and Trade

Sustainable economic development is based on international dialogue between politics, business and science. In the Global Project Quality Infrastructure (GPQI), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) engages in technical policy dialogues with important trading partners worldwide. With Brazil, China, India, Indonesia and Mexico, the project is implemented with the support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

In the dialogues, GPQI brings together political authorities, the business community and specialist organisations from Germany and the partner countries. All participants share their know-how and discuss challenges they face in quality infrastructure (QI). Within GPQI, they jointly develop politically and economically smart solutions for technical barriers to trade and for fair competition.
