Germany to showcase its sci-tech progress

Germany will celebrate the 60th anniversary of commencement of its diplomatic relations with India by showcasing scientific, technological and industrial progress made by it to the people of India. 

A year-long 'Germany in India' project has been launched to showcase the scientific, technological and industrial progress made by Germany to the people of India, German ambassador to India Thomas Matussek said while speaking to Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan at Raj Bhavan here today.

Mentioning that German companies have their largest presence in Maharashtra, the ambassador told the Governor that an exhibition pavilion to showcase Germany will therefore be launched in Mumbai in November this year. The pavilion will then travel to Kolkata, New Delhi, Chennai, Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad, he added.

The pavilion will stay put for two weeks in each of the seven cities, he said, adding colourful cultural programmes have also been planned alongside the exhibition. "Through the exhibition, we want to show Germany as a partner of India in diverse areas," he said. German companies in India such as Siemens, Allianz and BASF are supporting the project, he added. Asserting that this is not a one sided affair, the Ambassador told the governor that India will also be organising a yearlong show 'India in Germany' in 2012.

Corporate India has already made inroads in Germany with Tata Steel, Reliance and Bharat Forge having already established their base in Germany, he said. India's investment in Germany has increased four times during the last five years, he added. The ambassador sought help from the Government of Maharashtra and the Municipal Corporation of Mumbai in putting up the Germany pavilion in Mumbai.

Thanking the German Ambassador for selecting Mumbai for the launch of project 'Germany in India', the governor assured him of fullest cooperation and support from the State Government and Municipal Corporation.
