"Germany is keen to partner with Kerala in many aspects. We want to have cooperation in academic, culture and scientific fields. We want more German companies to invest in the state. We want more German tourists to visit Kerala," German Consul General Margit Hellwig-Boette said.
She was speaking after the Honorary Consulate of Germany was opened here by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Hellwig-Boette said the Consulate would bring the already outstanding ties between Kerala and Germany to a new level.
He said the new LDF government that came to power five months back has a vision.
He also spoke of the existing cooperation between Kerala and German companies in renewable energy and in other sectors.
Syed Ibrahim took oath as the new German Consul at the ceremony.
He is an IT-entrepreneur and the Honorary Representative of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce.
