“My participation at the Indo-German Young Leaders Forum 2018 in Delhi helped me to build that very special attention to topics related to India and its bilateral relationship to Germany. The forum gave me the chance to discuss the upcoming topics on global challenges and opportunities with my fellow participants from Germany and India and I believe that these bilateral ties will influence and shape the perspectives of many future decision-makers in a positive way.”
