Nagpur: Can Nagpur really become the national hub for Aviation and Defense Industry, with world wide potential?
Will our many Engineering colleges succeed in imparting the â€˜skillsâ€™ required to make our youth employment worthy in these sectors? (Because that is said to be the main cause for industry not coming in a big way to Nagpur and rest of Vidarbha.)
Will Industry, like Tatas and giants in the Defense and Aviation sectors lend a helping hand to both local industrialists and Academicians to make this happen? Or will they remain on the sidelines and just comment?
These and many such issues were dealt with at the AEROSPACE AND DEFENCE SUMMIT 2017 which was slated as being â€˜Initiative to co-create sustainable ecosystem for Aerospace, Automotive & Defence- Vidarbha Regionâ€™.
Dignitories and industry people who attended and addressed this summit conference included Lt Gen. Ravindra Thodge, Ex- MGO & Advisor to GOI, Mr K N Madan, Ex-Executive Director and DGM, Air India, Dr Rajarajan Shanmugam CEO, Tata â€“ HAL, Mr Sridhar Dharmarajan Senior Director SAARC & ASEAN, MSC Corporation USA and Mr Harsh Gune CEO, WOM India.
