About us

The CONNEX Support Unit was established by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. It is currently managed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Berlin. A Secretariat is responsible for the Support Unit’s day-to-day work and an International Advisory Committee guides its work.

The CONNEX Support Unit is an implementation body of the CONNEX Initiative which was launched in 2014 by the G7 leaders with the objective to strengthen advisory support to governments of low-income countries in the negotiation of complex commercial contracts.
