If defence and security cooperation forms the bedrock of Indo-Israeli ties, then collaboration on agriculture is, without doubt, the second most important sphere of the bilateral relationship. Here is a snapshot of the breadth of the bilateral relationship.
An investment in Germany is an investment in a country that strives to create and explore opportunities within even the smallest niches, claims Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI), the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany, in an attempt to woo more Indian investments.
Several Global Indians were in the fray in this year’s snap General Election in the UK on June 8. Here is a snapshot of their India connect and how they fared this time.
The Indian Prime Minister was on a packed tour of Germany, Spain, Russia and France in May/June and has returned with a slew of agreements and promising pacts for the future. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Berlin at the start of his European tour, the term used to describe the visit was the opening of a “new chapter” in the bilateral relations between India and Germany. The PM set off for his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at her [...]
Tel Aviv is the financial hub of Israel on the Mediterranean coastline. As the country’s tech hub, the city is known for its zest for life and as the place that never sleeps. Narendra Modi will become the first Indian Prime Minister to visit this city in July.

Mention the Middle East to an Indian and he will immediately associate it with oil, deserts, Dubai and, very possibly, a non-resident relative stationed there. None of the above provides a misleading picture of the region; equally, none of them paints the complete picture either. Today, the [...]
A leading consultant in the field delves into India’s move towards embracing good corporate governance. Good corporate governance is becoming a priority across the world. An OECD report to G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in 2015 begins as follows: “Good corporate governance is not an end in itself. It is a means to create market confidence and business integrity, which in turn is essential for companies that need access to equity capital for long-term investment.” Experts across the [...]
