Another important partner is the Consulate General of India, Hamburg.

„[…] In the economic sphere, the Indian government has triggered many processes of change. Hence, during India Week Hamburg 2015, experts from Germany and India will provide a professional audience with the latest updates and discuss the specifics of doing business with India.

Potential German investors will receive in-depth information on tax regulations and the latest developments in Foreign Direct Investment. The issues of energy supply and renewables will be discussed as well as life sciences. The ongoing shift towards digitalization will be picked up by looking at digital ecosystems, mobile and e-commerce in India or the media’s search for online gold. […]“
