When PM Modi arrived in Berlin, he was greeted warmly by the Indian community and then after by German Chancellor Scholz himself. To me, it's an indication of the extraordinary character of our connection, said Chancellor Scholz, who invited Prime Minister Modi to return to Germany for the forthcoming G7 conference.

PM Modi arrived in Berlin with a rousing welcome from the Indian community. Manya, a young girl, drew a pencil sketch of Prime Minister Modi and gave it to him when he arrived in Berlin. PM Modi also made time to engage with youngsters, singing a patriotic song with a child called Hey Janmabhoomi Bharat. The video warmed people's hearts, and the PM's day got off to a terrific start.


Following the meet-and-greet, Prime Minister Modi proceeded to Chancellor Scholz for bilateral meetings. This was their first public appearance since Chancellor Scholz took office in December 2021. The Ministry of External Affairs stated in a statement that the two presidents' conversations "included major areas of bilateral cooperation under the overall strategic partnership, as well as regional and global events."


Following the one-on-one meetings, both leaders convened for the sixth session of Biennial Inter-Governmental Consultations (IGC). Both countries inked nine agreements covering a variety of topics such as green energy, sustainable development, a hydrogen task force, and forest landscape restoration, among others. "For development and resiliency." To achieve mobility and prosperity. For a more environmentally friendly and sustainable future. For an Indo-Pacific that is open and peaceful. "The 6th India-Germany Inter-Governmental Consultations begin," he stated in another tweet.


The establishment of a green and sustainable energy collaboration was perhaps the highlight of PM Modi's visit (apart from the warm greeting from the Indian diaspora). Germany has pledged to help India's green growth strategy with an additional 10 billion euros in development funds till 2030.


The other major agreement included employment, higher education, and professional mobility between the two nations. The Comprehensive Migration and Mobility Partnership Agreement was signed by the foreign secretaries of both countries.
