Abstract:Although India is a major importer of defence equipment, it has also been manufacturing defence equipment for some of its needs. The Government of India's ambitious 'Make in India' initiative for the defence sector aims to achieve self reliance in defence equipment production. This essay explores the opportunities for bilateral arms trade between India and Africa, as a new facet of India-Africa defence cooperation. It covers India's arms export policy, policy reforms in India's defence sector, and the opportunities for Indian and African defence markets. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
