Business hub Germany of interest to Indian investors
Through the medium of a roadshow through India, the German investment promotion company "Germany Trade and Invest" is currently promoting Germany as a business location.
The events in Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi focus in particular on the opportunities in the fields of information and communication technology in the so-called "new" federal states.
"Germany is one of the world's leading economies. Our country is located in the heart of Europe and is thus at the center of the European single market”, said German Ambassador to India, Dr. Martin Ney, in his speech addressing potential Indian investors. “A secure political and economic environment, well-trained specialists and strong federal structures are among the other locational advantages”, he added.
Thuringia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Berlin, Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern have developed into a hotspot for information and communication technologies since German unification in 1990. Several important industry clusters, including the "Silicon Saxony" and the "Cluster Information Technology Mitteldeutschland", have settled there and connect players from fields of industry, research and education.
