Roundtable: Foreign Defence Attachés & Indian Defence Industry
We at BharatShakti.in, along with HQ Integrated Defence Staff, organised a Roundtable for Defence Attaches to push the envelope of the Make in India call further at the United Services Institute, New Delhi. It was a focussed interaction between Foreign Defence Attaches (FDAs) and representatives of the Indian Defence Industry (IDI). It was meant to serve the Attaches’ in their task of sourcing quality defence equipment from the Indian market that is maturing at a rapid pace and is capable of meeting global parameters with cost effective price tags.
The Roundtable was a huge success as can be evaluated based on the feedback from both the FDAs and representatives of the IDI who sponsored the event. The participation of the IDIs was deliberately limited to just six in order to allow intimate and adequate interaction between both parties. Among the industries that partnered us were Tata Motors, Solar Group, Star group, Zen Technologies, Mazagon Dock and Shipbuilders Ltd and MKU Ltd.
A few photographs that provide glimpses of the Roundtable have been uploaded for our viewers.
