Long-term relationships: Hamburg and India over time
In a rapidly changing world, maintaining long-term partnerships is often a challenge – but so far Hamburg and India have mastered this very well. That
Relations between Hamburg and India are very close and there are extraordinary partnerships and collaborations in the fields of culture, science and business. Many initiatives illustrate this relationship, such as a joint project between Hamburg and Hyderabad to promote culture or the visit of students from renowned universities in India to the Hanseatic city for discussions.
The beginning of this relationship dates back to a meeting in Hamburg in 1942 where the Indian national anthem was officially played for the first time in history. Since then, both parties have actively maintained relations with each other. India Week Hamburg plays a special role in this, and we celebrate its 10th anniversary this year from November 20 to 26 in the Free and Hanseatic City.
