Britain has offered technology transfer to India for co-production of weapon systems and military platforms.
Britain and India can prove to be “world beaters”. “We are looking at government-to-government framework for transfer of technology,” Britain’s defense secretary Michael Fallon said, on technology transfer to India in defence manufacturing during an interactive session at a leading think-tank on UK-India strategic ties Wednesday.
Fallon is on a four-day visit to India aimed at enhancing security and defense ties. Fallon also called for strengthening cooperation between the two countries to effectively deal with terrorism and extremism, calling them a major challenge facing the globe.
Referring to a spate of recent terror attacks including in London, St Petersburg and Egypt , he said, “No country is immune from terrorism. India and the UK need to work hard to combat it,” particularly emphasising on boosting cyber security cooperation to protect youths from radicalism and extremism.
