Visakhapatnam: Steel city to showcase maritime operations

The exhibition will also focus on Make in India' concept.

Visakhapatnam: The Maritime Exhibition coming up at Andhra University Engineering College grounds, as part of International Fleet Review (IFR) will give a sneak peak to the public into the operations of Indian Navy and also give an idea about Indian Navy’s thrust on indigenisation, under ‘Make in India’ concept.

A thematic entrance is being created which through a unique sound and light show depicts various facets of war and peace time Indian Naval operations such as anti-piracy, low intensity maritime operations, human aid and disaster relief including foreign cooperation.

Performance by the Royal Australian Naval (RAN) Band at the exhibition and IFR village is expected to be a highlight during the IFR.

“Maritime exhibition is a platform showcasing self-reliance of Indian Navy through innovation and indigenisation by PSUs and private firms which have immensely contributed to the military might of our country. The exhibition also showcases ‘Make in India’ concept,” said a Navy official.

Day performances of art forms like Bahurupi, puppet, rangoli, kalbeliya, panch vadya, shiv mudra from different states will showcase the unity in diversity of India.
