Last week, Swedish aerospace and defence company Saab said that it did not renew its memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Adani Group for manufacturing brand-new Gripen E fighter jets in India.
“Our MoU with Adani Group expired in 2019 and has not been renewed. Saab is waiting for the next step in the Indian Air Force fighter acquisition process. We are looking forward to the formal process to start,” Mats Palmberg, chairman and managing director of Saab India told CNBC-TV18.
On August 31, 2017, Saab and Adani Group announced entering into an agreement to manufacture Gripen E fighter planes in India. The agreement said that Adani would be Saab’s partner if the Swedish company is chosen to supply the Gripen E fighter jets to India.
