The German Business Circle (GBC) is an independent forum of German entrepreneurs, representatives and other interested parties with permanent or temporal residence in Zambia.
The GBC was founded in February 2014 after many years of casual yet successful networking of German entrepreneurs. With increasing German business activities in Zambia new members are now welcome to join a formally established forum to further develop business ties with Germany and among business-minded Germans in Zambia. Through active cooperation the GBC’s network spans numerous companies worldwide.
The GBC is affiliated to like-minded Zambian, German, regional, and international business organisations. Prominent partners include the Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ZACCI), the Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK), and the Chamber of Skilled Craft (HWK) Frankfurt-Rhein-Main.
Primarily the GBC organizes information exchange for its members. It liaises with both the Zambian and the German Governments and their relevant bodies on business-related topics. The German Embassy in Lusaka actively supports the GBC.
