Rajnath welcomes US defence firms to invest in India

On Monday, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh urged American businesses to invest in India and support the 'Make in India' initiative.

"I've spoken with American corporations about Make in India, aerospace, and the global programme." At a joint press conference with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and their American counterparts, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Tony Blinken, Singh informed reporters, "I have asked them for these programmes."

"We are in talks with companies in the United States for co-development and co-production." It's something we're suggesting to them. At the conclusion of the India-US 2+2 ministerial, the first of the Biden administration, he said, "We have asked the US corporations to operate in the UP and Tamil Nadu corridor and invest in that area."

"I insisted that India concentrate on co-developmental productions and that all investors visit India." They are more than welcome. And so they can grow the 'Make in India' initiative in India because we want to create and manufacture everything in India," Singh said in answer to a question from reporters.

Earlier, in his opening remarks at the 2+2 ministerial, Singh stated that India prioritises its strategic alliance with the United States. "One of the most critical pillars of India-US strategic relations is a major defence relationship," he remarked.
