Handel: Habeck: expand cooperation with India

Economics and Climate Protection Minister Robert Habeck is aiming for closer cooperation between Germany and India. Before the start of a three-day trip to India, the Green politician announced that India, with over 1.4 billion people, is now the most populous country in the world and thus a strong growth market in the Indo-Pacific region.

"The journey is also characterized by more resilience and more diversification. Closer cooperation, especially when it comes to renewable energies and green hydrogen, has great potential for both sides and can increase our resilience and economic security."

As a result of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine and earlier dependencies on Russia for gas supplies, Germany is trying to expand supply routes. In Asia, in addition to China, other markets such as India should be given more attention. The Federal Government sees great potential for intensified cooperation in the energy transition in India.

Habeck is flying to the Indian capital New Delhi today, where talks with Indian government officials are scheduled for Thursday. From there we continue to Mumbai. Habeck will attend the G20 Energy Ministers' Meeting in Goa on Saturday. India currently holds the G20 presidency.
