Dr. Subhash Bhamre reiterated India’s resolve in enhancing its defence capability and improving its defence industrial base, aiming towards becoming self sufficient.


He invited greater British participation in the ‘Make in India’ programme, a flagship initiative of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.


Dr. Subhash Bhamre also drew attention to the challenges being faced by both countries due to increased terrorist activities globally, as well as cross border terrorism being faced by India.
