Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Aviation Defence & In India -

On 24 Novem­ber 2017, Das­sault Avi­a­tion, Safran and Thales, which com­prise Rafale In­ter­na­tional, were in­vited by the Cen­tre Val de Loire Re­gional Coun­cil and Ae­ro­cen­tre at Tours to present their con­cept in cre­at­ing an in­dus­trial aero­nau­ti­cal sec­tor in In­dia, as part of the ‘Make in In­dia’ off­sets pro­gramme in sup­port of the In­dian Air Force Rafale fighter con­tract which was signed in Septem­ber 2016.

More than fifty French SMEs at­tended this Busi­ness-to-Busi­ness event, with the Rafale In­ter­na­tional part­ners pre­sent­ing their ap­proach on the Rafale Off­set pro­gramme and out­lined po­ten­tial op­por­tu­ni­ties for French SMEs as also in­vest­ment and pro­duc­tion­i­sa­tion in In­dia. “Such an ini­tia­tive will re­in­force Franco-In­dian co­op­er­a­tion and in­clude SMEs in the De­fence-Aero­nau­ti­cal sec­tor, es­tab­lish­ing an in­dus­trial ecosys­tem in In­dia,for the ben­e­fit of both French and In­dian com­pa­nies”, ac­cord­ing to a spokesman.

The event pro­vided clear op­por­tu­ni­ties and de­fined a roadmap for the French SMEs to as­sist them in join­ing the Das­sault Avi­a­tion, Safran and Thales global sup­ply chain, thus cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for new in­ter­na­tional mar­kets.
