When German Chancellor Angela Merkel visits PM Narendra Modi next week in India, both the leaders will have enough to talk about, from climate change and refugee crises to bilateral trade and scientific cooperation, DW reported. The upcoming Indo-German summit has been christened a “Government consultative meeting” but this should not mislead anyone about the importance of the event. Chancellor Merkel is visiting India accompanied not only by important cabinet ministers such as Economics Minister Sigmar Gabriel and Science & Technology Minister Johanna aWanka but also by a large delegation of business leaders in this three-day trip (4-6 October). India and Germany have an annual trade volume of 16 billion euro. There is undoubtedly room for expansion. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is creating more jobs and promoting his policies of attracting manufacturing industry to India under the slogan “Make in India” and of creating smart cities.
