A recently conducted poll by IQPC has revealed that over 33 percent of Indian defence and national security professionals agree that the country should invest in coastal security with a similar percentage casting their votes for increased investment in cyber-security. Over 20 percent respondents indicated the need to increase investments in countering terrorism while 11 percent have implied the need to focus on border security. The question of the hour is what direction will India’s defence budget of Rs. 1.64 lakh crores for the fiscal year 2011-2012 going to take?
IQPC’s Homeland Security Summit India, taking place from 30 to 31 May 2011 in New Delhi has set the platform to address current and critical issues facing homeland security in India. Latest technologies and best practices will be discussed to counter terrorism and threats. National and international experts will be present to discuss crucial topics on India’s defence system and the potential for growth.
India’s homeland security market is expanding rapidly and is promising to be lucrative for international investors. The country is projected to spend over $10 billion on homeland security technology products and services for border protection, surveillance, intelligence, marine security and other critical security infrastructure needs. With the international spotlight on India’s defence sector it is imperative for the country to gear up homeland security finance and infrastructure.
The Summit will feature a high level speaker panel who will deliver exclusive presentations on timely homeland security topics. The panel comprises of experts from The Ministry of Home Affairs, The US Navy, The Defence Research and Development Organisation, The Indian Maritime Foundation and many more.
