Building on the success of January 2020’s visit by an earlier programme cohort, the UK Defence Solution Centre (UKDSC) welcomed a second delegation of senior finance officials from the Indian Ministry of Defence to Farnborough. The Indian group also visited the UKDSC as part a study programme coordinated by the Indian National Institute of Financial Management (NIFM) and the UK Civil Service College. NIFM is a professional centre for public policy, financial management and other governance issues and promotes the highest standards of professional competence and practice.
During the visit the delegation were provided with overviews of the Defence Growth Partnership (DGP), the various UKDSC strands of work and Team UK’s activities at the recent DefExpo defence show that was held in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh state in India. The visit proved to be another valuable engagement in broadening the awareness and understanding of DGP and UKDSC with important Indian stakeholders.
