    Our way of working

    The projects and programmes promoted by KfW Development Bank are proposed by the governments of our partner countries; the respective country's development strategies and structures form the basis. On behalf of the German Federal Government, and primarily the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, we check whether the projects and programmes are developmentally sound and eligible for promotion. If so, KfW's experts assist the partners in any way they can and support the projects throughout their entire duration. We are continually building on our global presence to ensure that we can cooperate closely with our partners. In addition to our sites in Frankfurt, Berlin and Brussels, we also have foreign offices in around 70 countries.
