DefExpo To Boost India’s Defence Manufacturing Capabilities

DefExpo 2018 will, for the first time, project India’s Defence manufacturing capabilities to the world. This is reflected in the tagline for the Expo, ‘India: The Emerging Defence Manufacturing Hub’. 671 exhibitors have confirmed their space booking in DefExpo. These include 517 Indian exhibitors and 154 international exhibitors.

The four-day DefExpo, which will project India’s defence manufacturing capabilities, is all set to kick off near here tomorrow.

The biennial event will be held at Thiruvudanthai in the neighbouring Kancheepuram district, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi slated to formally inaugurate the expo on April 12.

DefExpo 2018 will help brand India as an exporter of defence systems and components.

While showcasing strengths of India’s substantial public sector, it will also uncover the country’s growing private industry and spreading MSME base for components and sub-systems, the organisers said.

Indigenously developed military helicopters, aircraft, missiles and rockets, capabilities to manufacture submarines, frigates and corvettes would be showcased at the event.

More than 50 countries have confirmed their participation in the expo and around 700 exhibitors have confirmed their participation, making it the highest ever registered one.

Indian participation includes private and public giants like Tata, L&T, Kalyani, Bharat Forge, Mahindra, DRDO, HAL, Ordnance Factories, and many others.

Major international companies that will participate include Lockheed Martin, Boeing (USA), Saab (Sweden), Airbus, Rafael (France), Rosonboron Exports, United Shipbuilding (Russia), BAE Systems (UK), Sibat (Israel), Wartsila (Finland), Rhode and Schwarz (Germany).
