An IDC Report


New Delhi, 06 September 2002

A major Defence Exhibition is being held at Karachi from 17 to 20 Sep 2002 and we list below some of the companies taking part. The main foreign countries in the list are Russian, Chinese, French, Italian. American and Turkish. An Indian news item had reported that the Russians had decided not to supply Defence Equipment to Pakistan. We thus presume that the four Russian companies listed below will be there for sight seeing, and that certainly cannot be the case.

We had earlier highlighted media reports that Pakistan was to get MI-17/17-1 helicopters and we look forward to your feed back.

The French presence is understandable as the DCN is helping to build the Agosta B submarines at Karachi –– despite 11 of their engineers who were killed by militants. the French support is still on. However we understand that Pakistan will have a tough time commissioning the second boat –– PNS SAAD sister to PNS Khalid which was launched recently. .

We also learnt that all the foreigners who have registered may not come for the show, as many insurance companies are not providing cover. These are very interesting times for Pakistan.

Here in Delhi the small IICDES Tri-service Defence exhibition is on at the Hotel Ashok with meagre attendance and we predict IDEAS 2002 in Karachi too will meet the same fate.

Yet there is so much money in Defence business that the Organisers will survive. In our case the CII made a packet at the DEFEXPO 2002 and now all eyes are on for Aero 2003 at Bangalore in Feb 2003.
