Dassault Aviation along with its Reliance Defence hosted an event in cooperation with key Rafale suppliers, Thales, Safran and MBDA to promote Business to Business (B2B) interactions between the French and Indian Aerospace manufacturers in Delhi today.
This event represents over 60 Indian Companies and 25 French Companies in New Delhi, the company announced in a statement Wednesday.
The aim is to develop a complete supply chain allowing the completion of the existing Rafale offsets obligations under the Rafale contract signed in September 2016 (obligations representing 50% of the total amount of the acquisition contract of 36 Rafale).
The Dassault Reliance Aerospace will be part of the planned Aerospace Park in Nagpur and plans to develop a locally value added supply chain, thereby building the Rafale under the “Make in India” initiative.
The impetus of “Make in India” will charter a progressive path for French and Indian industrial partners to help India meet its key strategic defence requirements and pave the way for an induction of the Rafale aircraft in the Indian Air Force.
