Meet­ing with po­lit­i­cal lead­ers, se­nior gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and lead­ing In­dian in­dus­tri­al­ists, Hew­son high­lighted Lock­heed Martin’s spon­sor­ship of the In­dia In­no­va­tion Growth Pro­gramme (IIGP) as an ex­am­ple of ef­fec­tive part­ner­ship in action.

Backed by Lock­heed Martin since 2007, IIGP is a part­ner­ship in­volv­ing in­dus­try and academia in both In­dia and the United States. It has un­der­pinned Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s ‘Start Up In­dia’ call by sup­port­ing more than 400 in­no­va­tors and start-up com­pa­nies since launch.

It’s a nat­u­ral en­deav­our for a global tech­nol­ogy com­pany like Lock­heed Martin and an im­por­tant way that we are able to con­trib­ute to the eco­nomic suc­cess of a na­tion where we’ve done busi­ness for many decades.”

“As we con­tinue to build on the mo­men­tum and trac­tion gained in In­dia over the past 25 years, Lock­heed Martin has proven ex­per­tise lev­er­ag­ing our in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies to help en­gi­neer suc­cess with our cus­tomers and part­ners,” said Hew­son. “I look for­ward to grow­ing our 25-year story in In­dia and to es­tab­lish­ing greater and more mean­ing­ful part­ner­ships that will help grow the In­dian econ­omy and com­mu­nity.”
