India’s contribution to Airbus's global products through the supply of components and services is worth more than $650 million annually, said Rémi Maillard, President and MD of Airbus India and South Asia, in an exclusive interview with Moneycontrol. “We Make in India, Design in India, Procure in India, Train in India and Innovate in India. Today, every commercial aircraft or helicopter that Airbus manufactures has parts, design or technology coming from India,” said Maillard. Edited excerpts:

Do Indian suppliers have a big role in the manufacture of the various civil aircraft that you make?

For us, India is a base, a strategic resource hub for emerging technologies, world-class talent and the research and development that power the aerospace sector. With its vast engineering and IT talent pool, India offers the right mix of competency and competitiveness. We are already leveraging these advantages to contribute to our global programmes.
