German chancellor Angela Merkel is touring India's Silicon Valley in the search for more opportunities for German business in the country. She also wants to roll out the welcome mat for skilled Indian workers in Germany.
When India and Pakistan became independent 70 years ago, they were at the same level of development, with both equally poor and wretched. But the economic gap between them is growing.
The welcome afforded to India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi by German Chancellor Angela Merkel is a sign of the potential Germany sees in India, says Wilfried Aulbur from Roland Berger consultants.
At a press conference, the leaders of Germany and India have said that the countries' relationship is of "international significance." But ongoing talks are emphasizing how best to beef up business ties.
Indian PM Narendra Modi has been welcomed in Berlin ahead of talks with Chancellor Merkel. Modi said the visit would "open a new chapter" in the countries' strategic partnership.
