Welcome by the Ambassador

Ambassador H.E. Mrs. Peggy Frantzen

                   Welcome, Wëllkomm

      

        to the Website of the Embassy of

      

        the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

                    

                       in New Delhi           

Dear visitor of the website of the Embassy of Luxembourg in New Delhi,

You will find a lot of information on this website, not only on the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, but also on the expanding relations between Luxembourg and India, as well as on the latest developments, which could be of interest to you.

The Embassy remains of course at your disposal for additional questions.

The official relations between Luxembourg and India date back to 1929, when Luxembourg opened its first vice-consulate in Bombay. Originating from the south of Luxembourg, where iron mines were discovered in the 19th century, I cannot help but mention the steel sector as one of the first links, at that period, between Luxembourg and India. On 1st July 1948, Luxembourg and India concluded diplomatic relations. Since then and especially during the last two decades - in 2002 Luxembourg opened an embassy in Delhi - relations grew and diversified considerably. They extend from the automotive sector to green and sustainable finance, medical devices, start-ups, higher education up to the space sector. The Indian community in Luxembourg is constantly growing and contributes to the already rich diversity of the Grand Duchy. The potential for strengthening and widening the relations remains important. I hope that during my tenure as an ambassador in Delhi, I can contribute to make our excellent relations progress further.
