“Modi’s entourage to the fair, where India was last partner country in 2006, will comprise five union ministers and three chief ministers, while the Indian business participation at Hannover has 350 companies,” said Michael Steiner, the German Ambassador to India.

Also on the inauguration day, the London-to-Kolkata telegraph line constructed by German major Siemens will complete its 145th year, whose association with India continues till date.

“The existence of India is very much seen in Germany these days through the lion logo representing ‘Make in India’ unfurled all over the country, at most of the public places,” the ambassador said.

“Hannover Messe exists since 1947 which has around 6,000 exhibitors and about 2,00,000 visitors over a week period,” he added.
