The 7th edition of Strategic Electronics Summit 2016 (SES 2016) – Defence & Aerospace, was successfully organised by ELCINA on 7th & 8th July, 2016 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bengaluru. The last 6 editions of SES from 2010 to 2015 successfully Brought Industry, Defence Establishment & Government Together and this platform is growing year on year.
On 7th July, the event was inaugurated by Hon’ble Raksha Mantri Shri Manohar Parrikar in the presence of Dr. Ajay Kumar, Addl. Secretary, Department of Electronics & IT, Lt. Gen. Subrata Saha, Dy. Chief of Army Staff (P&S) as well as many dignitaries from the industry. The program was attended by over 500 delegates participating in the Conference and Exhibition which witnessed keen interest from large Defence buyers including the Defence Officials and DPSUs.
Hon’ble Raksha Mantri Shri Parrikar addressed the gathering and his message clearly emphasized enhanced transparency and flexibility in the purchasing policy and procedures and changing the mindset of suspicion which had crept into the Defence Ministry and bureaucracy hindering the progress of the industry.
A key announcement by the Hon’ble RM was the support to the Defence Electronics Testing Lab proposed jointly by ELCINA Members and BEL and advised that the contours of this project be finalized within next few months. He would like to see the Lab up and running by the time the next SES was organized in 2017.
