Webinar on India-Sweden Defence Industry Cooperation

'Capitalizing Opportunities for Growth and Security’

08 June 2021 | 1315 – 1730 Hrs IST | Virtual Platform

India & Sweden have a long-standing diplomatic relationship which has been marked by regular high-level interactions at various international fora. During these interactions, the defence sector has been recognized as a key area of cooperation with immense scope for the Industries from both sides to collaborate.

The two countries signed an MoU on cooperation in the field of Defence in 2009 and more recently, this momentum was further enhanced during the 'India-Sweden Virtual Summit', in March 2021, where leaders of both countries, Prime Minister Modi and Prime Minister Löfven converged on strategic issues related to, inter alia, defence, counterterrorism, peace and security. Further, our Hon'ble Prime Minister has also extended an invitation to the Swedish firms to participate in the ‘Make in India’ programme and set up manufacturing units in India.

SIDM has been working closely with the Swedish government to foster a close working relationship between the Indian & Swedish defence industry. In 2017, SIDM, in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry(CII) & the Swedish Security & Defence Industry Association (SOFF) conducted the first 'India-Sweden Defence Industry Day' in New Delhi. In 2019, SIDM mounted a strong 20+ member delegation to Stockholm, where the Indian industry interacted with senior government officials from Sweden and discussed opportunities for mutual cooperation.

To further strengthen the relationship between the Indian & Swedish defence industry and identify potential opportunities, SIDM, in partnership with CII and SOFF, is organising a Webinar on 'India-Sweden Defence Industry Cooperation' on 08 June 2021, from 1315-1730 Hrs IST. 

The Webinar will bring together senior officials from both Governments and Industry and will involve discussions on enhancing India-Sweden Defence Cooperation.

Mr Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Defence Minister, Government of India and Mr Peter Hultqvist, Hon’ble Minister of Defence, Government of Sweden have consented to address the Inaugural Session of the Webinar.
