PM Modi inaugurates 10th edition of Defence Expo in Chennai

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the 10th edition of Defence Expo in Chennai. The expo is being attended by over 670 exhibitors, including 150 from abroad, will showcase India’s capability in the export of defence systems and components.

India is expected to spend close to USD 300 billion in the next five years in procuring defence equipment and almost all major global defence firms are eyeing a slice of it.

Though the four-day-long DefExpo, on the outskirts of Chennai and close to the temple town of Mahabalipuram, began on Wednesday, it will formally be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow.
