About The Event

The World of Defence Offsets!!!

  • Have you ever been piqued by the situation of having money on the table but not knowing how to reach it?
  • Have you ever had the nagging and persistent feeling about a huge opportunity somewhere that is slowly passing by you?
  • Have you ever been grounded by the ubiquitous government red-tape in your well-planned and thought-out entrepreneurial ventures?

               

                                                   

Have you ever been piqued by the situation of having money on the table but not knowing how to reach it?

Have you ever had the niggling and persistent feeling about a huge opportunity somewhere around but slowly passing you by?

Have you ever been grounded by the ubiquitous government red-tape in your well planned and thought out entrepreneurial ventures?

Yes?

Then welcome to the world of Defence Offsets!!!

Defence Offsets are the instrument through which opportunities worth $ 30 billion are knocking on the doors of  Indian entrepreneurs only if they can unravel the economics that encompasses it all.

We at ISB are determined to unscramble the enigma of offsets and empower Indian manufacturing by utilizing this money on the table for mutual benefits. We intend to analyze the entire gamut of offset implementation process along with the requirements of investment in R & D, requirements of supply chain management and financial issues that would make Indian Industry competitive in this domain.

The Munjal Global Manufacturing Institute (with assistance of General Management Club and the Energy, Manufacturing and Operations Club) and the College of Defence Management will conduct a two day seminar on “Strengthening Manufacturing in India through Defence Offsets” at ISB on 9-10 December. We shall look forward to your participation. 

If interested or curious, please respond with a blank mail and we shall keep you updated………

Do remember to block your calendars for 9-10 December (Entire Days).

Date: December 9-10, 2011

Venue: Indian School of Business, Hyderabad.

Theme: Under the aegis of the “Indian School of Business” and “College of Defence Management,” a joint national seminar “Swavalamban II,” on the theme “Strengthening Manufacturing in India through Defence Offsets” will be held on December 09-10, 2011 in Hyderabad.

Indian Industries, especially defence, homeland security and aviation, will benefit from an inflow of $30 billion, as offsets through military procurements from abroad over the next decade. It is firmly believed by experts that this is the opportunity for India to evolve and make manufacturing the hub of the country’s economic growth. Public-private partnerships in defence offsets can provide jobs, technology and skill development, and most importantly, lead to the creation of ancillary industries that develop around the major industries. The seminar will seek to answer four fundamental questions that can change the Indian manufacturing landscape. These are:

  • What are the prevailing perspectives of stakeholders in the field of Defence Offsets?
  • What improvements can lead to the efficient implementation of offsets?
  • How can entrepreneurial Initiatives be promoted in defence manufacturing?
  • What should be the framework for  the future national policy on offsets?

This seminar is a sequel to the highly-acclaimed seminar “Swavalamban I”  on the theme “Building Capability through Self Reliance in Defence Production,” that was held in Januaru 2011. The inaugural seminar gave rise to a host of issues, especially those related to the establishment of a defence industrial base.
