About Us

The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce for Eastern Africa (AHK - Auslandshandelskammern) is part of a global network of 140 Chambers of Commerce Abroad in 92 countries with 51,000 member companies worldwide. We offer our experience, network and services to German and foreign companies seeking positive bilateral business relationships in the region. AHKs are located in all countries which are of special interest for German industry and business.

Close Connection to Germany

The Delegation is closely connected to the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs) in Germany. Together, they support German companies with promoting and extending their business relations to foreign countries. The umbrella organisation of the IHKs is the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), which also coordinates and supports the AHKs and Delegations. Furthermore, the cooperation with various German trade associations strengthens the link between AHKs and business markets.
