II.1.4) Kurze Beschreibung: The German Government intends to support selected target countries in their efforts to improve their economic frameworks and investment climate in order to promote sustainable long-term investments and create additional formal jobs in the private sector. This shall be achieved by addressing respective bottlenecks. It is intended to establish a dedicated cross-country facility to address the main challenges preventing such investments. At present consulting services for the founding and interim management are rendered. In future, the facility will be managed by an implementation consultant as fund manager. The overall budget, including taxes and all other expenses, is estimated to be in the range of 13 000 000 to 18 000 000 EUR not including VAT. This includes a success premium for the implementation consultant, calculated as 0,5 % of the disbursements of the facility for contracts with beneficiaries. The assignment of the facility is however subject to funding by the German government.

II.2.4) Beschreibung der Beschaffung: Profile of the special initiative’s regional facility Investing for Employment¦: 1) Objective: Job creation in selected African Countries (100 000 new jobs within 5 years). 2) Approach: Facility for financial support for direct (SME) and indirect (cluster, business environment) job creation at country level. The basic idea is to use grant funding in a smart and catalytic way, so, to close gaps and overcome hurdles for sustainable employment. Addressed will be hurdles and gaps in the public domain’ which form obstacles to all or many enterprises in the specific thematic window. The funding will likely: — have to be linked to investments, — in combination with substantial own contributions, and — be accompanied by project preparation measures for implementation as needed. Projects could include and also target education and training needs that come along with a need for investments. 3) Funds: First allocation 80 000 000 EUR by German Government/BMZ. Considerable additional budget funds are envisaged for the years after. 4) Regional focus: Selected African countries. Target countries include at present: Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Morocco, Senegal, Rwanda and Tunisia. This list may be extended to the total number of 10 African countries until the end of the current legislative period in Germany. At the beginning, funds will be allocated at similar levels for the different countries. Later on, such allocation may be adjusted in base on the results of the call for proposals and the corresponding qualified demand. 5) Areas of support — Thematic funding windows: Promotional areas shall address challenges such as for example, lack of infrastructure (water, electricity, roads, etc.), lack of local funding opportunities, lack of conducive investment climate, lack of compliance with quality and sustainability standards or lack of a well-educated and skilled workforce. The three tentative interventional areas are: 1) Improving the investment climate: remove obstacles for investment and employment, e.g. for German and European Investors; 2) African Mittelstand: promotion of local SMEs for job creation; 3) (Public) Infrastructure for Industrial Cluster and Zones; economic/social infrastructure in selected industrial parks and local value chains, which are selected as follows: — Cote d’Ivoire: yet to be defined, — Egypt: yet to be defined, — Ethiopia: Textile industry; Agri-Business, Food industry, — Ghana: Most probably Agri-Business, Food Industry, — Morocco: Automobile (parts) Industry; Agri-Business, Food Industry, — Rwanda: Kigali Special Economic Zone, — Senegal: Agri-Business, Food Industry; ICT and Digital Economy, — Tunisia: Automobile (parts) industry; Aviation Industry; ICT and Digital Economy. Other funding windows might be added based on the outcome of a currently on-going gap analysis. The facility will offer support to address a broad set of potential challenges. Accordingly, actual sectors of investment will vary by country and can hardly be narrowed down at the moment. 6) Beneficiaries: Private and public: recipients can be private companies (for profit or non-profit), private associations or foundations, as well as any type of public entities or public agency on municipal, regional or national level as long as these entities form a proper legal body. 7) Instruments: Partial funding: financing contribution (Grant) for projects selected through a.o. call for proposals (CfPs) based on country adjusted criteria. Ownership and substantial own financial contributions of the investors are essential. Expected range of grant funds per project: 1 000 000-10 000 000 EUR. 8) Legal form of the facility: The facility will have the legal form of a company with limited liability according to German Law (GmbH).
