DEG Representative Office New Delhi
India continues to offer favourable conditions for investment and trade, even in view of slightly regressive growth parameters. A young population of more than one billion and highly-qualified manpower particularly in information and communications technology speak in favour of the 'made in India' label. The democratic structures and a legal system patterned after the European model are further advantages for potential investors. India’s industrial sector is now one of the biggest of its kind worldwide. Besides the traditionally very important textile industry, it is particularly characterised by heavy industry, engineering and chemical industry.
Germany is traditionally one of India's most important investment partners. Over 1,500 German companies have subsidiaries or hold interests in companies in India. Investments into the extension of the traffic infrastructure and power generation using renewable energy offer great potential. Manufacturing, information and communications technology, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology are further promising industries.
DEG has been engaged in India since 1964. Thanks to its many years of experience, it can provide close expert assistance to companies for the realisation of their investment projects. Its current portfolio comprises 572 million euros.
