Bavaria and Africa - a long-term partnership

The Free State of Bavaria has developed from an agricultural to an industrial region and is today the location of major corporations. The Bavarian State Government promotes the internationalisation of the region and maintains its own relations with other states and regions worldwide. In Africa, Bavaria is focusing on projects and cooperations in various fields of action.
