Speaking about the summit, Anil Uniyal, CEO, CNBC- TV18, said, “CNBC-TV18 has been a pioneer in nurturing business communities and has been constantly innovating with new genres of programming that help make business more relevant to different constituencies. In the past the channel has been an important catalyst in the Indian economy’s growth story. The brand has cultivated communities such as SMEs, entrepreneurs and others to take industry forward and is once again  extremely proud to support the Union government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.”

He further said, “Defence is one of the areas that require substantial investment as we are still heavily dependent on imports. CNBC TV18 ran a series of shows to highlight the investment potential in this critical sector. ‘The Defence - Make in India Summit’ is the culmination of these shows which will bring together industry thought leaders on a common platform and throw light on various issues pertaining to the sector – the challenges and the opportunities lying ahead. This is the first time that we are organizing such an event and we hope to continue supporting such initiatives in future.”

The summit is an endeavour to engage key stakeholders such as policymakers and other decision-makers from government, industry and users from defence forces in a discussion. Centre for Joint Warfare Studies (CENJOWS) is the Knowledge Partner and PHD Chamber of Commerce & Industry is the Industry Association Partner of the summit.
