The authors conclude that evidence from the shipping industry illustrates a strong departure from Germany’s long?established employment relations, where deregulation of shipping and labour law has led to the adoption of a “low road” approach.   2.Competitive advantage of German renewable energy firms in India: An empirical study based on Porter’s diamond.   Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the competitive advantage of German renewable energy firms in India. Based on Porter’s diamond model of competitiveness, the authors examine the demand for renewable energies in India and the ability ofGerman firms to meet this demand. The paper provides a detailed analysis of the factors on which the competitive advantage of German renewable energy technologies in India is based. This helps managers of renewable energy firms to focus on those areas where they have particular strengths and to introduce measures to overcome potential weaknesses.   3.

German partnership is very important for making Skill India Mission successful. It is believed that if 800 million youth get skill as per the global standards, then the youth power of India can contribute to India’s development. Germany has set global parameters in skill development which are very apt for India. Germany is known across the world for its innovation capability as well as its democratic credentials.Innovation has also become one of the top priorities for India and both countries can mutually assist in this regard.                           Future Recommendations   Germany and India share the view that new initiatives in the area of trade, bilateral investment, energy, energysecurity, the environment, culture, education, training, research, technology and defence can catalyse and activate the great potential of their bilateral ties,” said a joint statement released at the end of the Indo-German intergovernmental consultations held in Berlin. Germanyand India are determined to further expand their cooperation in higher education, research and technology — dynamic core areas of the Indo-German Partnership — and to open up new and innovative areas of cooperation, the statement said.
