R Madhavan, chief executive officer and management officer (CMD) of the public sector company said, “HAL has a long-standing partnership with Boeing and we look forward to strengthening our cooperation on military and civilian programs.” “We stand ready to collaborate with Boeing to promote manufacturing under the Atmanirbhar Bharat and Make in India programmes,” he said.

According to a statement issued by HAL on Friday, Salil Gupte, President, Boeing India, said, “We see India’s tremendous potential as an industrial and technology partner to contribute to the global aerospace industry. This partnership complements our industrial partners in the country. Evidence of world-class capability.”
