Building on the success of June 2020’s first UK-India Virtual Industry Engagement Forum that brought together a broad representation of UK and Indian defence industry, last week, the UK Defence Solution Centre (UKDSC) hosted an India country Community of Interest. The event was supported by John Howie, the DGP Country Sponsor for India and DIT UK Defence and Security Exports’ Head for Europe, Africa, Middle East, South & Central Asia, Kit Goldsmith as well as representatives from the British High Commission, New Delhi.
The event built on the current defence dialogue between the two nations, providing valuable insights into Government and Industry thinking. Presenters from the UK India Business Council gave a detailed review into the recently announced acquisitions reforms in India and what it’s implications for UK defence industry.
A series of similar, virtual events will be held over the coming months to position the DGP for a long-lasting successful partnership with India.
