Business Engagement with India
BEML AND HAL
In terms of corporate cooperation, the meeting at the Public sector enterprise BEML was extremely important, because BEML cooperates with the Czech company Tatra Trucks a.s., on the supply of trucks for the Indian Armed Forces.
Another important meeting directly with the manufacturers took place at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), a state and major Indian manufacturer in both the aviation and space industry. Additionally, the delegation also met with Siddharth Mishra at Bharat Dynamics Ltd., a major manufacturer of missiles, and other ammunition or with the Director General & Chairman of the largest state ordnance company Ordnance Factory Board (OFB), Mr. Hara Mohan.
The delegation from the Czech Republic comprised of such companies as the Czech Aviation Training Center, Eldis s.r.o., Omnipol, PBS Group, TATRA Trucks a.s. or the sector associations of companies like the Defence and Security Industry Association and the Moravian Aerospace Cluster. However, other Czech companies also took part in the virtual exhibition, such as the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Association of the Czech Republic or via the catalogue presentation like the Aircraft Industries. Separately, the company Primoco UAV presented itself at Aero India 2021, when their large model of drone beautified the significant exposition of the Indian giant BEML. The Czech footprint was thus one of the largest at the fair, in the wake of other giants of the defence-aviation industry.
