PM Modi inaugurates Aero India 2023 in Bengaluru

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Monday India’s biennial aerospace exhibition – ‘Aero India’ 2023 in Bengaluru – that will showcase the country as an emerging hub for manufacturing of military aircraft, helicopters, equipment and new-age avionics.

The 14th edition of the event will display indigenous equipment and technologies to forge partnerships with foreign companies.

Speaking on the occasion, he said: “Aero India is an example of the expanding capabilities of India. The presence of around 100 nations here shows that the trust of the world in India has increased. More than 700 exhibitors from India and the world are participating. It has broken all the past records,” news agency ANI reported.Aero India 2023 will feature aerobatics along with a large exhibition and trade fair of aerospace and defence companies.

Nearly 809 companies from 98 countries are taking part in Aero India 2023.

The theme of Aero India 2023 is “The Runway to a Billion Opportunities”.

Though the event will be miliary-dominated, it will also feature India’s efforts to accommodate a domestic travel boom and rebuild its brand abroad.

Air India is expected to announce a potentially record deal to buy nearly 500 jets from Airbus SE and Boeing Co, worth more than $100 billion at list prices.
