It offers English-language stories with a German-African angle, as well as information on business, education, research, politics, sports and culture in Germany. Current information is available in a bi-monthly electronic newsletter as well as on our Facebook page. Pretoria was chosen as the site for the GIC, reflecting its role as a media and communications hub within Africa.
