Foreign direct investments (FDI) between India and Germany have been growing steadily. As per the official Bundesbank data, the consolidated stock of German FDI in India grew more than five-folds between 2006 and 2016: from €2.9 billion to €15.9 billion. Today more than 600 German companies employ over 300,000 people in India and generate annual revenues worth €32 billion, which does not show in the trade statistics. Similarly, close to 100 Indian companies have invested €3.5 billion in Germany. They employ more than 20,000 people and generate annual revenues worth €11 billion in Germany.
So far, however, little information is publically available about the current patterns of German FDI in India, and vice versa, concerning the drivers of FDI, regional distribution and its effects on the host economy. German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) Hamburg is pleased to hold an event in cooperation with PwC Hamburg to shed more light on this and share this valuable knowledge with the interested firms, policy makers, media and individuals.

Die ausländischen Direktinvestitionen („foreign direct investments“: FDI) zwischen Deutschland und Indien nehmen kontinuierlich zu. Nach den offiziellen Daten der Bundesbank hat sich der konsolidierte Bestand an deutschen FDI in Indien zwischen 2006 und 2016 mehr als verfünffacht: von 2,9 Mrd. Euro auf 15,9 Mrd. Euro. Heute beschäftigen mehr als 600 deutsche Unternehmen über 300.000 Menschen in Indien und erwirtschaften einen Jahresumsatz von rund 32 Milliarden Euro, der in der Handelsstatistik nicht ausgewiesen wird. Ebenso haben fast 100 indische Unternehmen 3,5 Milliarden Euro in Deutschland investiert. Sie beschäftigen mehr als 20.000 Mitarbeiter und erwirtschaften in Deutschland einen Jahresumsatz von etwa 11 Milliarden Euro.
Bisher sind jedoch nur wenige Informationen über die aktuelle Entwicklung der deutschen FDI in Indien (und umgekehrt) über die Treiber der FDI, die regionale Verteilung und ihre Auswirkungen auf die jeweilige Volkswirtschaft öffentlich zugänglich. German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) Hamburg freut sich, in Zusammenarbeit mit PwC Hamburg eine Veranstaltung auszurichten, um dieses wertvolle Wissen mit interessierten Vertreterinnen und Vertretern von Unternehmen, Politik, Wissenschaft, Medien und Individuen zu teilen, so dass die bilaterale Kooperation weiter ausgebaut und intensiviert werden kann.
Die Veranstaltung beginnt mit einer kurzen Begrüßung durch Herrn Frank Quassowsky, Partner bei PwC Hamburg und Leiter der PwC India-German Business Group, und durch Dr. Rajnish Tiwari, Leiter von GIRT Hamburg.
Den einleitenden Worten der Gastgeber folgt ein Grußwort durch den Ehrengast, dem indischen Generalkonsul in Hamburg, Herrn Madan Lal Raigar.
Im Mittelpunkt der Veranstaltung steht das Thema „Deutsche Direktinvestitionen in Indien: Motive, regionale Verteilung und Effekte“ von Herrn Dr. Madan M. Arora. Weiterlesen →
