Bangladesh & Indonesia are interested to help each other in defense sector– Ministry Of Deference, Jakarta, Indonesia
Ministry of Defence of Indonesia said in a press conference that Bangladesh & Indonesia are interested to become a partner in the sector of defence. Both sides want to increase military training & military exercises to increase the industrial engagement issues.
Bangladesh uses Indonesian products for military purpose in a small number. As they are convinced to the quality of the grade of the products, they are interested to buy products from Indonesian defence industries, according to the speech of MoD.
Bangladeshi officials are willing to visit few companies including firearms company PT Pindad, shipbuilder company PT PAL, aerospace company PT Dirgantara etc.
Bangladesh wants to buy IFV from Indonesia and Indonesia wants naval projects with Bangladesh. So there are good probabilities to sign a deal in these sectors.
