Santander, together with UK India Business Council would like to invite you to this exclusive webinar on the India Maritime Defence Sector.

At the May 2021 Summit the Prime Ministers of India and UK set out a shared vision for the UK-India defence partnership and agreed to advance the relationship to a new level. Both governments have agreed Joint Statement and a 2030 Roadmap, which includes a Free Trade Agreement. This marks the beginning of a promising new era for UK-India research, capability and industrial collaboration on Indian combat air, maritime propulsion, space, cyber security and beyond.
