MAKE IN INDIA – MAST Indo-Asia 2018

Tue 6 Feb 2018 @ 11:46

MAST’s organisers are partnering with India’s Federation of India Chambers of Commerce and Industry to ensure the full support of the Indian defence sector at MAST India-Asia this November in New Delhi.

As is probably familiar for many of MAST’s exhibitors’/delegates’ companies, doing successful business in India demands a domestic partner, and FICCI boasts the broadest network and influence at the highest level of many government/military/industry organisations.

The benefits of this collaboration will be clearly evidenced by the number of meetings (especially with Indian Navy and DRDO) already being scheduled with MAST Indo-Asia sponsors and exhibitors.

Enhanced by an international VIP delegation programme, MAST Indo-Asia will be THE event to meet Indo-Asia-Pacific defence leaders and influencers this year, and the only such event to take place in easy reach of the Indian Navy HQ, DRDO, and MoD offices.
