The next edition of India's flagship military exhibition Defence Expo (DefExpo) will be held in Gujarat's capital city of Gandhinagar in March 20222 with the focus on projecting the country as an emerging defence manufacturing hub, reports Hindustan Times.
The biennial exhibition, DefExpo 2022, will be held from 11-13 March.
It should be noted that traditionally till 2014, the exhibition was always held in Delhi alone. However, since then, the exhibition has been held in different locations. In 2016, the exhibition was organised in Goa, in 2018 the venue changed to Chennai, and in 2020 it changed yet again to Lucknow.
The last edition, which was held in Lucknow, saw defence manufacturing firms from across the world participate in the five-day mega event. The Lucknow DefExpo was inaugurated by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi, and it had witnessed attendance by ministers from almost 40 nations.
The exhibition gains much significance as the government is pushing for greater domestic manufacturing of arms and lesser reliance on foreign nations for meeting the defence-related needs.
