The construction of a new office complex for the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration is to begin today with an official sod-cutting ceremony.

The provision of the new office, which is being constructed behind the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations in Accra, is to pave the way for the Centre to expand its operations in providing information about jobs and migration between Ghana and German .

The centre has a mission to develop, build and implement a model operational office to provide advisory services to migrants, promote regular migration and to support voluntary returnees from Germany in social and economic reintegration.

Jointly commissioned by the German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and Mr Ignatius Bafuor Awuah, Minister of Employment and Labour Relations in December 2017, the Centre is a cooperative venture between the Ministry and the German Development Agency, GIZ.

It will be relocated from the GNAT Heights complex to the new edifice after its completion. Construction is expected to be completed in six months.

The Centre operates as the first point of contact for Ghanaians who have returned from abroad and looking for investment, business and job prospects in Ghana.

It also provides information on options and requirements for legal migration to Germany, as well as employment opportunities and associated illegal migration risks.

In addition, the Centre offers counselling for returnees who need support with their social and occupation reintegration, as well as for all Ghanaians in search of vocational training and employment opportunities in Ghana.
