Currently in India, several thousand MSMEs are working in different sectors and are generally connected as Tiered Partners with various government establishments and large private sector OEMs. One of the key objectives of ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government of India is to bring Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) into the defence supply chain and thereby boost the self-reliance of the country in defence, and also contribute towards the burgeoning defence exports market.

Towards this, Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence in partnership with Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) is organising the ‘MSME Conclave 2021’ on 04th December 2021 at Air Force Auditorium, Subroto Park, New Delhi in hybrid mode.

2. To give a new impetus to the development of defence production in the country both for its domestic needs and also for exporting to friendly countries, by involving the MSMEs in large numbers.

3. To provide know-how to Indian MSMEs active in non-defence sectors for their entry in the defence sector.

4. To familiarise MSMEs on various funding mechanisms established specifically for facilitating capable entrepreneurs low on capital, or for capital intensive projects.
