Rosoboronexport : good prospects
According to the Russian Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation’s order, JSC Rosoboronexport had been appointed organiser for the joint Russian display at DefExpo India 2018. “Rosoboronexport has been a long- standing exhibitor at DefExpo India. Over the years, it has become the largest Asian venue showcasing weapons and military equipment for the land and naval forces. We consider our participation in the exhibition as a major contribution to the development of military-technical cooperation between Russia and India and an important area of the company’s marketing activities,” stated Sergei Goreslavsky, Deputy Director General of Rosoboronexport.
He added, “Today, Russia and India have good prospects for stepping up mutually beneficial cooperation in the supply of arms and military equipment for the land and naval forces, localising their production in India and upgrading previously supplied military products. We are also carrying out some hundred joint R&D projects. Much of this was the result of our active work at exhibitions in India. The distinctive feature for DefExpo India 2018 for Rosoboronexport was to promote, inter alia, Russian security systems, equipment for counter-terror forces.”
