70 Years of Strong Partnership

Cooperation began as early as 1951

One of Germany's most important partners in the Indo-Pacific is India. The two countries established diplomatic relations 70 years ago. At that time, India was one of the first countries to recognise the Federal Republic of Germany diplomatically after the Second World War.

“The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Government of India have agreed to exchange diplomatic missions of the rank of legations shortly.” With this short press release, the Federal Press Office announced the beginning of diplomatic relations between India and Germany on 7 March 1951.

On the occasion of the anniversary, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas acknowledged the special importance of Indo-German relations: "Germany and India are strategic partners. We are united by our vibrant democracies. We stand up for a rules-based world order - in the United Nations, but also as partners in the Alliance for Multilateralism."

Strong partners

Over the past seven decades, India has become one of Germany's most important partners in the Indo-Pacific. The two partners are united not only by common interests, which often lead to joint action, but also by their democratic constitution. On 18 May 2000, India and Germany signed the "Agenda for Indo-German Partnership in the 21st Century". This laid the foundations for the expansion of bilateral cooperation in a rapidly changing international environment. Since 2011, a key element of the exchange has been the bilateral Indo-German Government Consultations, at which the cabinets of both countries meet every two years.

Baden-Württemberg und der indische Bundesstaat Maharashtra sind seit rund sieben Jahren enger verbunden.

Anlaufstelle in Pune

 

Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
