New Delhi: President Droupadi Murmu on saturday said that the Gaganyaan and Aditya- L1 missions not only boost India’s standard in the space sector but both the missions will also help humanity at large.
Addressing the inaugural session of a two-day International Conference-cum-Exhibition on ‘Aerospace and Aviation in 2047’ in New Delhi, President Murmu said that the Aerospace sector has been undergoing a transformative phase by bracing up for independent technologies for defence and transportation purposes. She added that there is also a demanding task of cultivating human resources in the Aerospace sector to tackle these issues in the future.
The President observed that there is a need for upskilling and de-skilling of the workforce in the sector. She said that the decarbonisation of Aero-Propulsion is an important task that needs to be taken up because of climate change and global warming. President Murmu added that climate change and global warming threaten the very existence of humans. She noted that the development of sustainable jet fuel is one of the much-needed steps to decarbonise the economy.
During the event, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s office Dr. Jitendra Singh was also present.
The exhibition has been organised by the Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI) to commemorate its 75 years of excellence.
