New Delhi, Nov. 10 -- The 11th edition of the Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI) Group meeting between India and the United States (US) was held virtually yesterday.

It was co-chaired by Secretary (Defence Production) Raj Kumar from India's Ministry of Defence and Gregory Kausner from US Department of Defence.

The DTTI Group meetings are normally held twice a year, alternating between India and the US. However, this DTTI meeting was held via Video Teleconferencing consecutively for a second time on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aim of the DTTI Group is to bring sustained leadership focus to the bilateral defence trade relationship and create opportunities for co-production and co-development of defence equipment.
