Partnership opportunities with the 23 Regions of Madagascar

As part of the efforts to promote economic opportunities and international partnerships to support the development of each Region of Madagascar, the Government of Madagascar organises, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of the Interior and Decentralisation (MID), the Economic Development Board of Madagascar (EDBM) and the hosts Regions of Madagascar, the event “Journées Internationales des Regions / JIRs” (International Day of the Regions). 

The main objective of the JIRs is to promote the economic potential of the host region, to promote economic and commercial partnerships between Madagascar and foreign countries (with a focus on the JIR host region), and to promote cooperation for development and other types of innovative partnerships for the benefit of the region.

For the latest edition of the JIRs, the Regions have established a set of priority projects for which they are looking for partners. 

Commercial and  economic partners/investors, Civil society (NGOs), Development partners, funders and the Malagasy diaspora are welcome to engage with the Regions to make these projects a reality and contribute to the Region's development.

Interested parties, individuals and entities alike, are invited to get in touch with the Embassy who can help to arrange the connection with the Regions.
