Prime Minister Narendra Modi met the Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz, on 27 June 2022 on the sidelines of the G-7 Summit in Schloss Elmau, Germany.

This was the second meeting between two leaders this year; the previous meeting took place during PM’s visit to Berlin on 2 May 2022 for the India-Germany Inter-Governmental Consultations. 

The Prime Minister thanked Chancellor Scholz for the invitation to the G7 Summit.

Continuing their discussions from last month, the two leaders emphasised the need to take forward their green and sustainable development partnership. 

Discussions covered issues like climate action, provision of climate financing and technology transfer. Both leaders also agreed on the need to further deepen trade, investment and people-to-people ties.

Greater coordination in international bodies, particularly in the context of India’s forthcoming G-20 presidency, was discussed. The two leaders also exchanged views on regional and global developments.

Modi also met the Indonesian President Joko Widodo and both leaders exchanged views on global and regional issues of mutual interest.

With South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Modi discussed continuous coordination in multilateral bodies and the need for their reform, particularly the UN security council.

Both leaders reviewed the progress made in bilateral relations between the two countries, particularly following the signing of the strategic programme of cooperation in 2019. 

They expressed satisfaction at the progress achieved in defence, education and agriculture sectors, and reiterated the need for further deepening bilateral cooperation in areas like trade and investment, food security, defence, pharmaceuticals, digital financial inclusion, skill development, insurance, health and people to people contacts.
