Defence Attaches Set To Make Debut In Asia’s Largest Air Show Aero India

More than 40 defence attaches from Indian missions abroad will gather in Bengaluru later this month to take part in Asia’s largest air show, Aero India-2019, to get the lowdown on homegrown military systems and technologies, an initiative aimed at helping the country tap defence export opportunities, two officials said on condition of anonymity.

The defence attaches — military experts attached to diplomatic missions — will attend the 12th edition of the biennial event being staged at the Yelahanka air force base from February 19 to 23. While a total of 44 colonel and brigadier-ranked officers had flown to Chennai last April to attend DefExpo-2018, the attaches will be taking part in Aero India for the first time.

“The attaches can help India home in on new defence markets. It is part of the government’s larger goal of positioning itself as a defence exporter,” said one of the officials cited above. India has 44 defence attaches accredited to 95 countries, with several of them holding the charge of more than one country. Read more
