We are pleased to invite you to an event on the coming 23rd of January. The event is about the potentials of Indo-German partnership in the food processing industry and is being organized by the Consulate General of India (CGI) in Hamburg with active support of GIRT Hamburg. A study conducted on behalf of the CGI on this theme will be also launched at the event. Mr. Madan Lal Raigar, the Consul General of India in Hamburg, will deliver a welcome address. There will be a presentation of study results by me and we shall have time for a Q&A session followed by a small networking reception.
There is no fee for participation. Kindly send your registration to this event directly to the Consulate (firstname.lastname@example.org) latest by January 18, 2017. Due to the limited number of seats available the Consulate reserves the right to accept registrations. The event shall be held in Hotel Baseler Hof, from 18:30h onwards on Monday, the 23rd January. Further details are available here.
We are pleased to invite to our next meeting, which will take place on Monday, the 13th June 2016.
This time we have the pleasure of hosting two special guest talks on the following topics:
“The age of digital enterprise: Opportunities of Indo-German collaboration”, by Mr. Ashutosh Kumar. Since 2002 Ashutosh is working with SAP at their head office in Germany. In his current role as chief business consultant he drives “IoT & Digital Experience” strategy services across EMEA region.
„India – A bright investment spot in global economy: assessment of last two years and opportunities on the Horizon“ by Mr. Manish Singla. He is currently Executive Director with Client Associates (Gurgaon) and is leading a team of seasoned family office professionals.
As usual, our meeting will take place from 18:30h onwards at Hotel Baseler Hof (Esplanade 11, 20354 Hamburg). In case of interest please send a binding registration by e-mail to email@example.com by June 7, 2016. Owing to space constraints we reserve the right to admission.
Please also note that GIRT meetings are held as a “Stammtisch” which means there is no entry or participation fee but the participants are expected to consume their evening meal at the venue and pay for one’s own consumption. It is important to abide by this rule as this is the only way we can keep our events free-of-charge in representative settings.
The India Week Hamburg is successfully over, the ongoing year 2015 is, however, not yet finished and leaves us some space for further activities. Following our long tradition, GIRT Hamburg will go to Bremen on 30th of Nov. and organize an exciting and informative event together with the German-Indian Society of Bremen (DIG Bremen e.V.) between 17:00 and 20:00h.
We will have two keynotes: one will focus on the “Importance of intercultural competence in a globalized economy | Experiences of a German Manager in an Indian company„, by Mr. Karsten Papmeyer. Mr. Papmeyer is founder and board-member of an Indian engineering & IT company.
In a second keynote Dr. Rajnish Tiwari from Center for Frugal Innovation at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) will speak about the “Relevance of Frugal Innovation in today’s Germany and the Avenues of Indo-German Collaboration”. In this he will also report some recent developments in the relevant research activities at TUHH. Dr. Tiwari also heads the GIRT chapter in Hamburg.
Developments in foreign direct investments (FDI) in India in the wake of the new government in Delhi is the topic of a panel discussion at law firm Taylor Wessing in Hamburg. The event, co-organized by Taylor Wessing and German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) Hamburg, will take place on November 5, 2015 between 17:30 and 20:00 hours and is a part of the India Week Hamburg 2015.
