Ms. Fleur Thomas, head exports, Ministry of Defence, UK speaking about two way street to Brig. Atray at Aero India. (Transcribed Video)

ADU: We have with us Fleur Thomas from the ministry of defence, a very powerful lady who is the head of exports, dealing with security policy and operations. I would only like to ask you about the two way street.

FT: Yes, of course, so talking initially of a powerful lady, it was very good to see your minister today opening this wonderful exhibition at Aero India. We’re very pleased to be here as a large UK delegation. The two way street is something that we launched in Aero India last year which is all about something encouraging Indian companies to do more business in the UK, not only by engaging with the many companies, we have here in the UK pavilion but also by registering their interest, it’s flying to our own UK ministry of defence. We have a local website to do that which is contracts.mod.uk, in which companies can express their interest. Since DefExpo, we’ve had about 80 Indian companies already register for the capabilities that they’re interested in supplying to the UK. This is a very good news and we have a lot of companies seeking joint ventures with Indian companies and lots of meetings going on at the show, which is very exciting, between UK companies and the Indian companies and

We’re here to encourage that something we’d like to see more so that, as the years go on, we’ll see much more collaboration. This is not about the UK coming to sell off-the-shelf products in terms of exports, this is working together, sharing the best practice and capability development and being able to work closely together between India and the UK

ADU: Thank you very much.

FT: that’s My pleasure
