Credit: The Times of India, 04 Feb 2008. An Article by Rajat Pandit.
5th International Land and Naval Systems Exhibition is being held from 16 – 19 February 2008 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The Exposition will be held by the Ministry of Defence, Government of India, in association with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). It will cover Land, Naval and Associated Sub-Systems and Systems. It is a biennial exposition.

The Defexpo would showcase latest technologies in the field of marine and land systems. The Apex Committee of the Defexpo is Chaired by the Hon’ble Raksha Mantri.

The aim the Exposition is to showcase capabilities of the Indian Defence Industry, both Public and Private, and the DRDO to visiting delegations with a view to foster collaborations, promote exports, and tie-ups.

Defexpo 2008 assumes special significance in view of the impending acquisition of capital equipment and systems by the Indian Armed Forces to the value of approx 30 b USD in the next five years.

To enable industry to take full advantage of the Defexpo, a number of business events prior to and during Defexpo India 2008 have been planned. These business events would enable industry to take advantage of the presence of the end users and the defence companies to engage in business meetings.

Defexpo throws open vast opportunities for Defence Professionals to engage themselves with Indian & Foreign Defence Industry in various capacities. However, it should be done within Govt. Orders and Regulations on the subject, and in full transparency.

Ex-Servicemen could engage themselves with Defence MSMEs, and Large Corporations for Offset Projects, JVs, TTs, etc, from their place of settlement. USD 10 b (INR 40,000 Crores) is likely to flow back to India as Defence Offsets in the next 5 Years. It presents tremendous opportunity for professionals with defence domain expertise. Visit to the Show, Conferences and Seminars would be of particular interest to the Defence Community. You could Register FREE for Visit & Seminars online.
