As a nation of more than one billion people aspiring to regional leadership in South Asia and global leadership, India seeks capable armed forces with world-class equipment. Its rising middle class is fueling economic growth and industrial self-reliance. With a strong technology sector, India must still rely on non-Indian industry for some of their equipment while seeking to maintain sovereignty and independence. Regional rivals (e.g. Pakistan and China) seek to frustrate the Indian government’s efforts while advancing competing visions for leadership and control of South Asia. And more distant actors (Russia and the U.S.) seek commercial contracts and geo-political sway.
On Tuesday, November 17 at 11:00am EST, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) will partner with the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) for a webinar examining this market of confounding complexity.
