In Opportunity Beckons: Adding Momentum to the Indo-German Partnership, Gurjit Singh, India’s Ambassador to Germany, has brought together a galaxy of industrialists, academicians, diplomats and journalists to explore various facets of Indo–German relationship. The edited volume elucidates how this dynamic partnership between two great nations has intensified considerably over the last few years, and how it can be furthered to foster enhanced mutual cooperation, friendship and bilateral engagements.

While the close links and the strategic cooperation between India and Germany are contributing to a more egalitarian world, there are challenges that lie ahead. How to make this partnership more diversified, deep and engaging? How do we change perceptions and add momentum to the partnership?

Opportunity Beckons provides solutions to such issues and looks at ways to strengthen the economic, intellectual and social engagement between India and Germany.
