FICCI-Indian Navy International Seminar on 'Nation Building through Shipbuilding'

Jul 25 - 26, 2019,FICCI, New Delhi




A vibrant shipbuilding industry has contributed to the economy and security of most great powers. The shipbuilding industry directly impacts national GDP, generates demand in various upstream and downstream industries, and therefore acts as an important multiplier for job creation. These ships, in their voyages, are a living testimony to a nation’s industrial capability and might.

Shipbuilding has been identified as a key strategic sector under the Make in India initiative. Though a fair amount of technology and indigenisation has been achieved, additional capacities and new capabilities for the rapid growth of the sector is required. Whilst India has developed a national capability to design and build nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers but unfortunately it does not design or build much of the various vessels and modern riverine transports vital for the balanced growth of the economy and national security.

Towards taking stock of the national shipbuilding industrial base, FICCI in association with Directorate of Naval Design (DND) [Surface Ship Design Group (SSG)] is organizing an International Seminar on “Nation Building through Shipbuilding” on July 25-26, 2019 at New Delhi. The conference is aimed at identifying specific interventions and global best practices required to further develop this strategic sector. We are also pleased to have the National Maritime Foundation (NMF) as our Knowledge Partner for this important initiative.

Hon’'ble Raksha Mantri – Shri Rajnath Singh Ji is being invited to deliver the Inaugural Address. Admiral Karambir Singh, PVSM, AVSM, ADC, Chief of the Naval Staff, Indian Navy is being invited as Guest of Honour and Dr. Ajay Kumar, Secretary Defence Production is being invited to deliver special address at the Inaugural Session.
