Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov: "AeroIndia-2017 is an important event for India’s and regional aviation market. India has for many years been a strategic partner of Russia and of Rostec. Our two nations have successfully worked on multiple projects bringing Russian technology to India and producing state-of-the-art military equipment locally, most notably Su-30MKI fighter jets, T-90S tanks and the Brahmos missile. Now the Modi government adopted the «Make in India» course aimed at localization of production of military products in India and it involves creation of joint ventures and deep transfer of technology. In the framework of this program we have signed an agreement to establish a joint venture for the production of Ka-226T in October 2016 at the BRICS summit. Now there is active implementation of this project. We are also working on the expansion of cooperation in various fields in accordance with Make in India – in the traditional sphere of military-technical cooperation and in non-military areas such as electronics, biotechnology and composite materials."
