India is a very important alliance

We do not have a defined strategy for Asian markets. We evaluate our opportunities case to case. Our eyes are on the South Asian markets. We are striving very much in India and hope something will happen soon. As of now, we have no office in India.

As we do not have a final product, there are no sales to the Indian defence industry. We are seeking for territories all over the world. Supply chains are integrated and we are open to partnerships. Spares will never be sparse and we have an active strategy for keeping their supply continuous.

For landing gears, we are thinking of a strategic partnership with Indian government for supply to the production units of the Indian public sectors. India is a very important alliance and we anticipate both our countries to have more industrial liaison with each other.
