Business Opportunities in Germany : How Indian and German companies can partner to get more business?

Overview

As a part of NASSCOM’s efforts to enhance Global Trade Development, we are glad to inform you that we are organizing a session on "Business Opportunities in Germany – how Indian and German companies can partner to get more business”
 
As we move our focus from the so called traditional markets of US and UK, Germany offers immense opportunity both partnership and as a lucrative market. It is often said that Germany's real economic strength comes from small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). Hundreds of thousands of SMEs employ almost 70 percent of the country's workforce make Germany an economic powerhouse in numerous fields including engineering, logistics industry, healthcare, nano and biotechnologies and automobiles among many others.
 
Germany is one of Europe’s leading players in the ICT sector, making up approximately 20 percent of the European market, and has the fifth largest market for ICT worldwide. With a volume of over EUR 130 billion, it leads Europe in sales, growth potential, and personnel. ICT drives 80 percent of Germany’s innovation. . At the moment, the ICT branch has a far more stable position than other industries. Despite the crisis, IT expenditure will even increase by 1.5 % and thus reach a level of 67 billion euro. Outsourcing will even grow by 7% and show an impressive 14.6 billion euro turnover. These growth rates indicates at which level further potential can be made available to companies when reviewing their business processes and giving a more prominent role to IT.
 
With the support of BITKOM (IT association of Germany) and Germany Trade and Invest we are happy to organize the session on Germany.

Cordially, request the pleasure of your company.
