NEW DELHI (BNS): The Eurofighter GmbH supervisory board are meeting for the first time in New Delhi to discuss on strategic issues and long-term cooperation with the Indian suppliers.

The CEOs from Eurofighter partner companies (EADS, BAE Systems and Alenia Aeronautica) will be in New Delhi from 25th to 26th October 2010.

According to a media report, the makers of Eurofighter aircraft are in talks with Indian firms to plug them into the European consortium's global supply chain, in potential deals worth millions of dollars.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is currently competing in India's MMRCA deal for 126 fighter aircraft. During the meeting, the supervisory board will be proposing additional opportunities for industrial and technological cooperation.

"The Eurofighter Supervisory Board is meeting in New Delhi to underline the importance we attach to integrating India into the programme as a true and equal industrial partner. Even ahead of any contract, we are ready to engage India's defence and aerospace industry in joint production and research & development (R&D) for Eurofighter Typhoon," Bernhard Gerwert, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Eurofighter GmbH and CEO of EADS subsidiary Cassidian Air Systems, was quoted as saying in the company news release.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine canard-delta wing multirole aircraft designed and built by a European consortium of three companies: Alenia Aeronautica, BAE Systems, and EADS working through a holding company Eurofighter GmbH, which was formed in 1986.
