[DUBAI] US aerospace group Boeing and India's Tata Advanced Systems announced Monday they are joining up to make airframe parts for the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.

After initially building a manufacturing centre in India for the Apache, they will expand the partnership to compete for further work on Boeing commercial and defence platforms, they said in a statement released during the Dubai Air Show.

The firms gave no financial details.

"This partnership will capitalise on India's industrial capability, innovation and talent to contribute to Boeing's long-term competitiveness and position us for future growth in the global marketplace," said Chris Chadwick, chief executive of Boeing Defense, Space & Security.

"It is a demonstration of our commitment to further accelerate our partnership with one of the world's fastest growing economies."
