Hannover Messe 2017 – Get New Technology First!

The world’s leading show for industrial technology that highlights innovations and groundbreaking solutions in all the core sectors will be held from 24 to 28 April 2017 at Hannover, Germany with POLSKA being the Partner Country. HANNOVER MESSE 2017 will have a determining impact on the digitization of production processes. The second keynote topic is “Integrated Energy”. No other trade show presents such a comprehensive and integrated overview of tomorrow’s energy systems. HANNOVER MESSE is a unique opportunity to stimulate growth and identify new customers in previously untapped markets.

Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet

HANNOVER MESSE and Industrie 4.0 are an unrivalled combination. For numerous years the keynote theme “Integrated Industry” has been spearheading the transition to the digital future. The Forum “Industrie 4.0 meets the Industrial Internet” reveals the extent to which previously separate approaches are now converging. Flexibility is the key to future competitiveness. HANNOVER MESSE 2016 revealed that Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet are no longer just a future projection. Hundreds of ready-to-run solutions were presented. In 2017 thousands of such practical solutions will be on display.

Only HANNOVER MESSE boasts seven leading trade shows under a single umbrella, plus all the key technologies and ideas at the same time and the same place.

India Pavilion at Hannover Messe 2017

Boasting an average annual growth rate of 10 percent over the last 10 years and with current growth running at around five percent, India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. To stimulate growth the country is opening itself up to further foreign investment, having decided to modernize its infrastructure and industrial plant and equipment. Last year alone, the German federal government promised some one billion euros worth of loans to India – funds which are to be used primarily in the area of energy efficiency, renewable forms of energy and the sustainable use of natural resources.

In line with Indian Prime Minister’s vision of making India a global destination for manufacturing and promoting India as a hub for production of technologically advanced products, participation in HANNOVER MESSE is an important step towards showcasing India’s prowess in the engineering sector. It would be a suitable platform to experience German expertise in innovative and high-end technologies and identify areas for cooperation with global participants.

India – European Union relationship

India’s diplomatic relation with the European Union (EU) started in early 1960s and a cooperative agreement signed in 1994 took the relationship beyond the jurisdiction of trade and economic cooperation. Then a ‘Strategic Partnership’ was formed between India and the EU and both agreed to have a Joint Action Plan in 2005 with a view to strengthen political and economic relation, enhancing trade and investment and extending social tie up.

Overview of the EU economy

EU slipped into recession (on quarterly basis) following the global financial turmoil and sovereign debt crisis in some of the southern European nations. However, despite some quarters of negative GDP growth, the EU managed to escape a double-dip recession backed by effective measures of European Central Bank (ECB) to ensure adequate supply of liquidity from the financial system. The sovereign debt crisis again intensified in 2011 and ECB came to rescue troubled nations by agreeing to purchase their bonds against a commitment of fiscal austerity from those nations. Very low inflation also helped ECB to adopt growth supportive measures and the economy of EU is most likely to see a slow but steady revival in economic activities going forward.

India’s engineering exports to EU and Germany

  • India’s engineering exports to both EU and Germany exhibited more or less same trend.
  • Engineering exports to EU rose by around 279% (from US$3.87 billion to US$14.72 billion) between 2004 and 2013 while it was nearly 300% for Germany.
