Russian Helicopters to Take Part in India's 8th Vibrant Gujarat Forum

Russian Helicopters has considered to participate in the’ Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2017’ regional investment forum in India.

The eighth biennial Vibrant Gujarat forum is taking place in state of Gujarat's capital Gandhinagar on January 10-13.

This year's event focuses on sustainable economic and social development. It is the largest regional forum in India, in which business leaders, government representatives and experts from India and all over the world take part.

The forum aims to attract investments to the state's economy and develop regional industry, Sputnik News reported today.

"Today, India is one of the main operators of Russian helicopters. It is worth mentioning that the country's authorities are also showing an interest in civilian vehicles." Russian Helicopter Deputy CEO Alexander Shcherbinin was quoted as saying in a company statement.

India already operates civilian Mi-172 helicopters. "We are interested not only in selling military equipment, but also in setting up long-term relations with our Indian partners and are ready to offer them a number of additional services, including after-sales services." Shcherbinin added. 

India currently operates about 400 helicopters made in Russia and intends to further boost this number.

India uses a broad range of Mil Mi-17 and Mi-8 transport helicopter variants. These are used in search and rescue operations, passenger transport and are involved in the protection of forests and fisheries.
