It has earned the respect of foreign Air Forces who are eager to cooperate as well as exercise with us.  We are strengthening our defence capability through increased domestic production and reduced dependence on import of military hardware. We have to seize new opportunities for indigenous design and development and I appreciate the IAF’s effort in this regard.
