On request of Dr. Andreas Waldraff, Chairman of German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) we are pleased to inform our members of the 3rd Indo-German Investment Summit that is scheduled to take place on 12th Nov. 2014 in Berlin. GIRT is a cooperation partner of the event.
The Consulate General of India, Hamburg will celebrate the 68th Independence Day of India at its premises on Friday, August 15, 2014, beginning 9:45 AM. All office bearers and members of the Indian and Indo-German Associations / Organisations have been „cordially invited to attend the function“.
The Consulate has also requested such associations and organisations to disseminate this information among the Indian community requesting them to participate in the celebrations. Further details may kindly be taken from the attached file.
Dear friends of GIRT Hamburg,
India is currently witnessing a massive exercise by its citizens, the exercise of a very fundamental, democratic right. According to BBC, “It is the biggest voting event in the world: more than 800 million Indians are going to the polls over six weeks to elect a new government.” The results of this almost gigantic exercise and a hotly contested election would be out on 16th of May.
We cordially invite you to our next meeting of German-Indian Round Table in Hamburg on 26th of May (18:30h). By then we would know which party has won the largest number of seats in the Lok Sabha, the Lower House of India’s Parliament, and hopefully also which alliance of parties is likely to form the next government. With some luck, we might also have a preliminary idea of the policy framework for the next legislature period. Irrespective of which coalition rules in Delhi in the post-election period, we hope for, and expect, new impulses for socio-economic growth.
We are pleased to bring to the notice of our readers an upcoming event on 11th April in Hanover:
As part of the Global Business & Markets – International trade platform of Hannover Messe the India meets Europe summit will take place on the 11th April 2014 at the Messegelände Hall 13 Business Forum 2 in Hannover. The summit is organised with the support of partners like Indian Embassy, FICCI, OAV, EEPC India, BIBB, Germany Trade & Invest and others partners from Industry. We aim to bring together decision makers from German and Indian industry, administrations, institutions, think-tanks, academia and associations together to focus on evaluating the economic development and engage all stakeholders to strengthen and explore new initiatives in the area of bilateral trade and investments, infrastructure and energy, research and development, skill development and vocational training, and economic cooperation between the two partners. The Summit will provide an interactive, and thought-provoking platform that will benefit participants in making key decisions with respect to doing business in Germany and India.

Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,
Dear friends of German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) Hamburg,
In the name of GIRT Hamburg, and also personally, I would like to extend you and your dear ones our very best wishes for a healthy & prosperous New Year 2014.
I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to our next meeting that takes place on Monday, 20th January 2014. We will have the pleasure of listening to a talk by Dr. Henning Marwege, Managing Director of Camfil Power Systems GmbH in Bremen and Board member of Camfil India. Camfil is internationally working in the fields of air filtration and power plant components with headquarters in Sweden. Dr. Marwege is responsible for the Camfil branch in Bremen and is active in India since 1998.
Dr. Marwege will talk about “Camfil’s Way to India”. The talk covers topics such as mode of entry/operation (licensing, JV or wholly-owned subsidiary). In his own words: “It also describes production models by means of 100% sub-contracting, lease and operate as well as own and operate. Life in India with headache, frustration, patience and plenty of success.” This sounds very exciting and promises a motivating inauguration of the new year.
