Indo-German Centre for Business Excellence launches with Inaugural Annual Conference

On 11 November, Frankfurt School and its partners officially launched the new Indo-German Centre for Business Excellence (IGC) at the invitation-only Inaugural Annual Conference, held in a hybrid format.

More than eighty participants joined on Campus in Frankfurt and another 65 online. The programme included sessions on a wide range of topics affecting Indo-German business relations, from general discussions on the economic outlook for the two countries to more specific talks about healthcare, digitalisation, entrepreneurship, and venture capital.

Speakers and panellists included the German Ambassador to India, Walter J. Lindner; the Indian Consul General in Frankfurt Dr. Amit Telang; Puneet Chhatwal, the Managing Director and CEO of The Indian Hotels Company and President of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce; Soumitra Bhattacharya, President of Bosch Group in India; Bernd Leukert, Head of Technology, Data and Innovation and Board Member at Deutsche Bank; and Prof. Amrita Narlikar, the President of the German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA).

Despite a packed schedule, the event left enough time for interaction and networking among the participants during the breaks and the evening reception, which featured innovative Indo-German fusion cuisine.

We thank our sponsors and partners for their generous support to enable the event!
