01.04.2019 German-Indian Roundtable with economics minister Tiefensee at PIKO on April 1st 2019 

On Monday April 1st 2019, the PIKO Spielwaren GmbH in Sonneberg hosted a wrap up meeting with members of the German-Indian Roundtable (GIRT) in the course of the trip of the Thuringian delegation to India lead by economic minister Wolfgang Tiefensee.

After the delegation trip to India, Dr René F. Wilfer, CEO of the well-known model railway manufacturer PIKO, hosted the meeting and invited the participants to a company tour in Sonneberg. Dr Wilfer himself was very pleased with the organisation and results of the trip. He had the chance to meet new customers in India and establish contacts to development engineers, who are interested in learning the maintenance of model trains and build a maintenance service for PIKO products in India. India is not yet a large market for model railways, but Dr Wilfer has the opinion that it offers great potential, due to the fact that India is a country of railway enthusiasts. As a thank you, every attendant was given a special print PIKO car with the picture of the travel group in front of a temple in Coimbatore, India.
