Lars-Olof Lindgren, Head of Market Area said,“Defexpo 2014 will be an opportunity to meet Indian stakeholders from government, defence forces, homeland security, research, technology and industry. The main theme for Saab for this Defexpo is Teaming up with India. Saab believes in partnerships – A combination of smart ideas, local knowledge and close relationships with Indian companies forms the basis of Saab’s thinking edge, and opens the door for innovation and new technologies.

Through industrial cooperation, we will together with Indian companies achieve the long term goal of creating an indigenous, self-sufficient defence industry for the global market. This, combined with our willingness to transfer cutting-edge technology, will result in mutually beneficial partnerships.

There are already a number of Saab partnerships with Indian companies, including those with Tech Mahindra, Pipavav, HAL, QuEST, among others. DefExpo 2014 offers the opportunity to reinforce the message.”

As a forerunner to the Defexpo, Saab launched its dedicated site: http://www.saabgroup.com/defexpo2014, a virtual space that will carry updates from the Saab stand at Defexpo 2014. The Saab Defexpo site and the Saab Facebook will host an innovative online 3D Pavillion offering a virtual tour of the Saab stall.
