Indo-German Bilateral Trade Relations: Opportunities and Challenges


  • Asma Khatoon

    () (Department of Commerce, Aligarh Muslim University, India)


The Indo-German bilateral trade is deemed to be a far cry of a respectable volume for two large economies. Despite the fact that both economies have pledged to increase bilateral trade, the importance that India assigns to Germany is yet to be reciprocated. Both India and Germany create an array of opportunities for one another, which remain uncharted. This paper examines the extent of trade relations and trade of both economies from global and bilateral perspectives. The purpose of this paper is not only to measure the extent of bilateral trade between these two countries over the period of 2008-2013 but also draw some conclusions about the potentialities. The paper focuses on opportunities and challenges of the bilateral trade amongst these two countries, and particularly, the challenges that hinder cooperation are elucidated in this paper.
