PM Modi to unveil Boeing India’s tech centre campus near Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Jan 19 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday will inaugurate Boeing’s new global engineering and technology centre campus near the city.

The centre has been built for Rs 1,600 crore on a 43-acre state-of-the-art Boeing India Engineering and Technology Centre (BIETC) campus.

This is the US aviation giant’s largest investment outside the country.

The campus will become a platform for partnerships with startups, and private and government ecosystems in India.

It will also help develop next-generation products and services for the global aerospace and defence industry.

PM Modi will also launch the ‘Boeing Sukanya Programme’ that “aims to support the entry of more girl children from across India into the country’s growing aviation sector”, an official said.

“The programme will provide opportunities for girls and women to learn critical skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) fields and train for jobs in the aviation sector,” he added.
