Our Next Generation Defence Collaboration On Building Capabilities Will Redefine India- UK Relations: UK Defence Minister, James Heappey
James Heappey, Defence Minister (Procurement), UK with BW Businessworld’s Manish Kumar Jha at the DefExpo 2020 in Lucknow.
On India-UK collaboration & 6th Generation Jet Fighter, The Tempest:
There are bits of kits, Missiles, Planes, Tanks and Rockets that we would love to just sell you now. But your ambition is to make in India, for India and for the world. So, what we are here to do is sell our ideas. The Minister hesitated in sharing the details about the UK’s much awaited Tempest, the 6th Gen Jet Fighter, quoting the degree of sensitiveness associated to the secret project that they are working on as a government.
Partnerships with India on such cutting edge projects will redefine the UK-India relations.
