The Indian CE industry has great potential for Germany, especially in the areas of manufacturing, infrastructure and energy, which are the major growth sectors in India. A great deal of perseverance is needed until talks and discussions come to a successful end. Perhaps new developments in terms of technology and business models will give a fresh impetus to Indo-German relations in the raw materials’ industry.

The symposium received an overwhelming response and was amongst the top 10 most attended events at the bauma forum.
