With the impressive growth of the Indian economy in recent years, Indian companies have been engaged in outbound investments, acquisitions and joint ventures around the globe. One of their preferred investment destinations has been Germany, which is globally recognized as a top choice for know-how, innovation and R&D.

The only exceptions relate to non-EU investments in a very limited number of areas with an impact on national security. German law knows nothing comparable to the complex Indian regime for foreign direct investment.
