Friday, 26 August 2016 : 0930 hrs : Hotel Central Point, Ramdaspeth, Nagpur
CII Maharashtra Defence Task Force has created a greater awareness amongst its members & industry in Maharashtra through Buyer-Seller Meets. In fact, at the Buyer Seller Meets held in Aurangabad & Nashik held recently, 7 SME’s have been shortlisted and more expected to join this list of suppliers to Indian multinationals for Defence Manufacturing.
These meets were organized to provide an opportunity to SMEs to showcase their products and services and the primary focus is to provide a platform to supplier industries. These sessions have helped SMEs to understand the opportunities available in the Defence sector.
As you are aware, Government of India (GOI) is promoting the manufacture of Defence hardware in India under its flagship ‘Make in India’ program. GOI has set the target for meeting 70 percent of India’s Defence needs internally in the next 5 years. This would need the local industry to be more than double in size resulting in the creation of 1.2 lakh new jobs. To reap the benefits of the ‘Make in India’ initiative, Government of Maharashtra has started a program called ‘Make in Maharashtra.
