New Delhi/Bengali: At the opening of the Boeing engineering center in Bengaluru today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that India would not have to wait too long for a jet that is developed and built on the subcontinent.
The biggest location for the corporation outside of the United States is the Boeing India Engineering and Technology Centre (BIETC) in Bengaluru. It will have a development and research focus.
Prime Minister Modi emphasized the importance of creating an environment for aircraft production in India during the event, which was also attended by key Boeing executives, including Chief Operating Officer Stephanie Pope.
“We must quickly establish an ecosystem for the manufacture of airplanes in India because the nation has enormous potential, PM Modi stated.
“This is the time, this is the right time,” I declared from the Red Fort’s ramparts. Additionally, now is the perfect time for Boeing and other foreign businesses to coordinate their expansion with the swift advancement of Bharat. With the support of 140 crore Indians, the goal is now to create Bharat within the next 25 years, according to PM Modi.
“Given Bharat’s enormous potential, we need to
set up the environment for aircraft manufacture as soon as possible. Bharat has a large skill pool and a strong network of MSMEs. When combined with a stable administration and a pro-“Make in India” policy framework, this produces a win-win scenario for all industries. The Prime Minister expressed confidence that the people would not have to wait long for Boeing’s first completely developed and produced airplane in India.
On a 43-acre property at Hightech Defence and Aerospace Park in Devanahalli, on the outskirts of Bengaluru, BIETC was constructed at a cost of ₹ 1,600 crore. It is anticipated that the facility would serve as a keystone for collaborations between dynamic startups and the Indian government and business sectors.
Boeing did not disclose how many individuals will work at the new site. Across all of its locations, Boeing presently employs more than 6,000 people in India.
In addition, PM Modi unveiled the Boeing Sukanya Program, which the business claims encourages more young Indian girls to pursue careers in the nation’s expanding aviation industry.
According to a statement from Boeing, the initiative would give women and girls from all over India the chance to train for careers in the aviation industry and acquire vital skills in the STEM sectors (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
“According to Boeing President and CEO David L. Calhoun, “We are honored and privileged to support Prime Minister Modi’s transformative vision for India, and we are grateful that he dedicated the Boeing campus to foster aerospace innovation in the nation.”
India, the country with the fastest-growing aviation industry in the world, is showing a sharp increase in interest in Boeing aircraft as demand for travel is outpacing supply.
