UK companies involved in some of the most cutting edge technologies in the global Land and Maritime sectors are exhibiting at DEFEXPO 2012, some visiting for the first time others returning after a successful DEFEXPO 2010. The UK theme is “Partnership” as UK companies look to strengthen existing and build new industrial partnerships with companies in India.
The UK delegation is led by Mr Gerald Howarth Minister for International Security Strategy. In February, Minister Howarth led the largest ever defence trade delegation of 25 companies to India. Its primary aim was to forge long term joint ventures with Indian industry and many of the UK businessmen have returned to DEFEXPO to do just that.
Collaboration between Indian and UK Defence Science and Technology experts has been enhanced following the signing last September of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the heads of DRDO and the UK’s Defence Science & Technology Laboratory. This arrangement will facilitate joint defence research projects in the near and medium term of mutual interest.
