The German ambassador to India, Michael Steiner, will commence a two-day visit to Chennai on Thursday.

Mr. Steiner is scheduled to meet business leaders as well as experts in the field of education during his maiden visit to the city. His agenda includes a visit to the Daimler plant in Oragadam for a first-hand stock-taking of the investment climate for German companies in the State.

He will also visit Kendriya Vidyalaya-IIT school to set the tone for the ‘#k GERmany’ campaign that was launched recently in Delhi.

The school is a member of the milestone drive ‘Deutsch an 1000 Schulen’ (German in 1,000 schools) that aims to introduce German as a foreign language in the 1,090 Kendriya Vidyalaya schools across the country.
