Addressing at ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat-Defence Industry Outreach’ webinar, PM Modi aimed to boost India’s capabilities and global peace, and also for helping the world economy become more stable.
PM Modi remarked, “India has been one of the biggest defence importers in the world. When India achieved independence, there was a lot of scope for indigenous defence production. Very few countries had the potential like India. But it is India’s misfortune that inadequate attention was paid to this issue over the decades.”
