Rajnath Singh – Defence Minister:
I express my gratitude to the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind for gracing the Valedictory session of Aero India show in Bengaluru.
It is an honour for all of us that the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces has complimented the MoD & Forces for Aero India 2021’s success.
This year’s Aero India show has offered a unique platform not only to the Indian public and private sector industry, but also to the global OEMs to forge partnerships, showcase their products and technologies to the potential customers and investors.
I must add that 128 MoUs, 19 Transfer of Technologies, 4 handing over, 18 product launch and 32 major announcements is the vindication that aero India 2021 has been a grand success.
This is evident as more than 16 thousand people have attended Aero India physically and more than 4.5 lakh virtually.
This platform hosted for 540 companies including 84 foreign companies from 55 nations
