Dassault Aviation Enters into JV with India’s Reliance Group

The Dassault Reliance Aerospace was announced by France’s Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO Eric Trappier and Reliance Group chairman Anil Ambani. The agreement includes a 50% offset obligation, which is the largest-ever offset contract recorded in India.

Defense News quotes an Indian Air Force official who said, “A comprehensive military aerospace partnership in terms of joint venture can actually [be] translated into a long-term commitment from Indian and foreign players aiming to strengthen defense industry in India.”
