During the 6th Intergovernmental Consultations (IGC), Germany and India reaffirmed their mutual commitment for the Indo-German Digital Dialogue. Both sides reiterated that the Indo-German partnership is based on shared values, rules-based, open, inclusive, free and fair trade. Furthermore, they underlined the socio-economic benefits of the digital transformation for their countries.
On 4 March 2022 at the NASSCOM International SME Conclave, the Indo-German Digital Dialogue facilitated a session on “Opportunities for Indian SMEs in Germany and understanding digitalisation needs of the German Mittelstand” together with the German Association for Medium Sized Businesses (BVMW).
To achieve balanced and fair rules for the digitalisation of the economy, it is necessary to have a platform for regular exchange with our partners and stakeholders from the public and private sector.
During the Foreign Trade Days of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the GIZ secretariat for the Digital Dialogues hosted a virtual focus session. Experts discussed how they can jointly shape digitalisation in foreign markets – ensuring that the most relevant questions and topics are addressed and solved.
Representatives from both countries successfully adopted a Work Plan until 2022. It provides for partnerships in areas such as internet governance and data policy, emerging technologies and digital business models.
