India Week Hamburg - Review 2019

 From 28th of October to 3rd of November, the Hanseatic City illuminated in the colours of India for the eighth time. A varied programme of around 70 events in the subject areas of culture, business, politics and society, science and sports invited visitors to get to know, experience and enjoy the diverse and exciting subcontinent. The main focus lay on the topic "sustainability," which many events were dedicated to. Many of Hamburg's India stakeholders actively participated in the diverse programme and emphasised the good relations between the Hanseatic City and the key region of India.

India Week Hamburg - Review 2019

Dr. Peter Tschentscher, the First Mayor of Hamburg, inaugurated India Week Hamburg with around 450 guests in Hamburg City Hall.

Around 25,000 visitors took part in the colourful programme and enjoyed new insights into a country that has a wealth of traditions to offer and is, at the same time, a significant emerging economy. The opportunity to get to know India in its cultural diversity at concerts, exhibitions and dance performances, as well as an Indian cooking course and various movie screenings was enthusiastically accepted. In panel discussions, workshops and conferences, Indian and German experts discussed current social trends and the economic potential of relations between Hamburg and India with their audience. Overall, India presented itself as a partner with many opportunities and promises.
