"The global drone Expo 2022 intends to bring together industry experts, agricultural farmers, dealers, distributors, people from the banking sector, insurance sector and all the majority of the stakeholders related to the drone ecosystem in India," Agnishwar Jayprakash, Founder CEO Garuda Aerospace told ANI.
