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.
