Even in the reference to Germany as the host of the G20 summit in Hamburg in July this year, PM Modi offered India's full support for a successful outcome.

"The bonds of a fruitful partnership".

"Through this new initiative and others, including MyGov.in, that invites the public to participate, Prime Minister Modi has included millions of Indians in a collaborative effort that can improve the efficiency of public service information delivery and accelerate progress", he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to begin his four-nation tour of Spain, Germany, France and Russian Federation tomorrow with an objective to boost India's economic engagement with these countries and inviting more investment proposals.

In an interview with German newspaper, "Handelsblatt", he had urged Europe to play a lead role in tackling the menace of terrorism. To our mind, terrorism is the gravest challenge facing humanity.

Remembering his last year's announcements on yoga competitions and awards, he said: "we shall gradually advance in that direction". Germany is a valuable partner in our development initiatives and German competencies fit well with my vision for India's transformation.

The more formal part of the visit will begin tomorrow when Modi is welcomed with military honours at the Chancellery, following which he will hold talks with Merkel as part of the fourth round of the bi-annual India-Germany Intergovernmental Consultations [IGC].

Prime Minister Modi will depart for Hotel Adlon Kempinski at Palaisaal to attend the Indo-German Business Summit 2017.
