FICCI aerospace and air de­fence busi­ness del­e­ga­tion at Paris Air Show

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE PARIS AIR SHOW REPORT -

FICCI for the first time mounted a 19-mem­ber In­dian in­dus­try del­e­ga­tion rep­re­sent­ing both large and MSME play­ers in the aerospace and air de­fence sec­tor at the In­ter­na­tional Air Show at Le Bour­get, Paris, France. The ob­jec­tive of the del­e­ga­tion was to forge deeper ties be­tween the Euro­pean and In­dian aerospace in­dus­try. The am­bi­tious pro­cure­ment plans of the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia cou­pled with the ‘Make in In­dia’ cam­paign pro­vided an ideal plat­form for the Euro­pean aerospace in­dus­try to seek op­por­tu­ni­ties for co-de­vel­op­ment and co-pro­duc­tion in air de­fence tech­nolo­gies and plat­forms in In­dia.

Apart from busi­ness meet­ings with French ma­jors like Das­sault Avi­a­tion, Safran, etc, the del­e­ga­tion also in­ter­acted with other global ma­jors like SKF, Nex­ter, be­sides other im­por­tant SMEs. The del­e­ga­tion also met the aerospace clus­ters of Canada and France. The del­e­ga­tion was hosted by GIFAS on June 17, 2015, where Ashok Ga­jap­athi Raju, Min­is­ter of Civil Avi­a­tion, and Mo­han Ku­mar, Am­bas­sador of In­dia to France, par­tic­i­pated at France-Indo In­dus­try Meet­ing and ex­changed views on co-de­vel­op­ment and co-pro­duc­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties un­der ‘Make in In­dia’. Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Ashok Ga­jap­athi Raju wel­comed the French com­pa­nies to ex­plore the vast op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered by In­dia, not just as a mar­ket but also as a man­u­fac­tur­ing hub with vast pool of tech­ni­cally qual­i­fied skilled pro­fes­sion­als. Dur­ing this oc­ca­sion, the se­nior in­dus­try lead­ers from In­dia and France also de­lib­er­ated on the strengths and op­por­tu­ni­ties in de­fence aerospace sup­ply chain and main­te­nance, re­pair and over­haul (MRO) in In­dia.
