The ninth India-US Defence Technologies and Trade Initiative (DTTI)

The ninth India-US Defence Technologies and Trade Initiative (DTTI)

The 9th India-US Defence Technologies and Trade Initiative (DTTI) group meeting is scheduled in New Delhi during the last week of October.

Key Points:

  • DTTI is not a treaty or law rather a flexible mechanism, which makes sure that senior leaders from both countries are engaged consistently to strengthen opportunities in the field of defence.
  • The value of this bilateral defence trade between the two countries is estimated to reach USD 18 billion later this year.
  • The 8th session of DTTI was held in February 2018 in New Delhi. This was co-chaired by Deputy Chief of Integrated Defence Staff from India and Acting Director, International Cooperation from the US.

DTTI:

  • The main aim of DTTI includes strengthening India’s defence industrial base, exploring new areas of technological development and expanding U.S.-India business ties.
  • Its initiative is led by the Undersecretary of Defence for Acquisition and Sustainment from US and Secretary for Defence Protection from India.
  • It is an initiative to provide “increased US senior-level oversight and also to engage beyond these obstacles.”
