Traditionally, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development invites all citizens to an open house every year at the end of August. This was also the case in 2017. On that day, we again had the opportunity to provide an insight into PTB’s work. At our information stand, the focus was especially on the topics of trade and the export quality management manual. Visitors were able to find out for themselves what quality actually means and how quality can be identified.
Our project coordinator Svenja Weyrauch was enthusiastic about having the chance to make people aware not only of development cooperation in general, but also of the special support rendered by PTB in the field of technical cooperation. At the same time, she herself was able to gain an insight into the lives of the visitors. »A lady returned to PTB’s stand half an hour after she had had an initial conversation with us about PTB’s work. She told me that she had just realized that as an employee of the Afghan Embassy she comes into direct contact with the work of PTB. I thought it was wonderful that she appreciated our work very much and considered it as internationally valuable.«
