"It is a pleasure to thank you for many years of friendship with you personally and with info sys. It was in 1997, when you first time reached out to info sys when we made a decision to settle in the RheinMain area of Germany. You have helped us throughout our journey and it has been a pleasure to operate in such a wonderful area. It has been your personal commitment to the investment that you also encouraged and brought delegations of German companies to India and thereby promote Indo-German trade. Please allow me to thank you for this and remain."
