India & Germany: Made for Each Other

Made for each other. India, Asia’s rising economy and Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, make for a perfect fit. With a rising India blessed with resources and demographic dividend, and hungry for cutting-edge technology, research and innovations, Germany is a perfect partner is more ways than one. Prime Minister Narendra Modi wasn’t dramatizing when he said in September last year that-India and Germany, bound by democratic values, are “made for each other” because of complementary skills and resources to power the next generation of industrial development through partnering in manufacturing and infrastructure development. Indeed, these will be key themes that will frame PM Modi’s first full-spectrum summit meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on April 13. Ahead of the talks, the two leaders will jointly launch the Hannover Messe 2015 – the mecca of high technology and engineering. The Hannover Fair will frame the master-theme of PM Modi’s visit to Germany: Make in India.
