The 'Make in India' initiative provides "a valuable opportunity" to French and Indian entrepreneurs to enter the defence equipment manufacturing field in India, junior Defence Minister Subhash Bhamre said today.

Speaking at a day-long conference on 'Indo-French Defence and Aerospace Cooperation' in New Delhi, the Union minister of state for defence said the medium, small and micro enterprises in India are capable of contributing to the global supply chain.

"The Make in India initiative offers a valuable opportunity to the French and Indian enterprises to enter into production of defence equipment in India."

In India's "quest" for self-reliance in defence and aerospace, the challenge is to bridge the technological gaps, he said.
