IAF chief to visit Singapore air show

New Delhi : Indian Air Force (IAF) chief N.A.K. Browne Monday left for a four-day trip to Singapore that is hosting a global airshow for aviation companies to woo the lucrative Asian market for private jets and defence hardware.

The visit by Air Chief Marshal Browne is also aimed at enhancing defence cooperation with the Southeast Asian island nation, an IAF spokesperson said. The air chief is likely to discuss a wide range of bilateral issues on the ongoing defence cooperation between the two countries towards expanding the already robust bilateral military to military ties , the spokesperson added.

During his visit to Singapore, Air Chief Marshal Browne will call on Minister of State for Defence Lawrence Wong. He will also meet his Singapore counterpart Major General Chee Meng and Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant General Neo Kian Hong. Browne is leading a composite defence delegation to the island nation and is accompanied by senior officers from the armed forces and ministry of defence.

The Indian delegation is likely to visit the biennial air show to have a look at the latest in defence technology. Some 900 exhibitors, including Boeing, Airbus and Bombardier, from 50 countries are taking part in the show that begins Tuesday. India and Singapore share good defence ties and participate in joint exercises, exhibitions, conferences and frequently conduct exchange programmes in staff courses and training activities.
