Dassault Aviation kick-starts Make in India

New Delhi: Dassault Aviation along with its key partner Reliance Defence hosted about 200 delegates from the aerospace industry, from different parts in India representing over 60 Indian companies and 25 French companies in New Delhi on June 14. The event, in cooperation with Rafale’s industrial partners Thales, Safran and MBDA, was to promote business to business (B2B) interactions between the French and Indian aerospace manufacturers.

In keeping with the Skill India plan of the government of India, this B2B interface between the French and Indian entrepreneurs was aimed to deepen existing links, create new opportunities of collaboration and work towards establishing a full-fledged defence manufacturing eco-system in India.

The purpose of the event was to develop a complete supply chain allowing the completion of the existing ambitious Rafale offsets obligations under the Rafale contract signed in September 2016 (50 per cent of the total amount of the acquisition contract of 36 Rafale) and build a strong base for the success of Rafale under ‘Make in India’.

The Dassault Reliance Aerospace Limited will be part of the planned Aerospace Park in Nagpur and plans to develop an indigenous value added supply chain, thereby building a strong base for success of the Rafale programme.
