The President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Professor Dr. Horst Koehler, has conferred the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany on Mr. M. Y. Noorani, a citizen of Mumbai.

Mr. Noorani, who established the renowned Zodiac Clothing Company Limited, opened up the German market for Indian textile manufacturers already in the 1960s, when - as President of the Clothing Manufacturers Association - he initiated the participation of an increasing number of Indian companies in German textile related trade fairs.

These same Indian companies also became important customers of German textile machinery suppliers. As member of the committee of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce from 1992-2000 (He was also the President of the Council of the EU Chambers of Commerce in India for two years and a member of its Committee since 1993) he played a significant role in promoting Indo-German trade and investment relations. In the Indo-German Chamber's Committee he was succeeded by his son Anees who also became President of the Chamber for the period 2004/05.

His leisure activity of gardening has led to his being involved in the beautification of Mumbai, having served on the Managing Committee of “Bombay First”, an initiative of the Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry, for the development of Mumbai.

The German Ambassador to India, Mr. Thomas Matussek, will hand over the Deed of Conferment and the insignia to Mr. Noorani at a function hosted by Walter Stechel, Consul General of Germany in Mumbai, on 25 November, 2009.
