In line with Government’s Act East Policy, both public and private defence companies are looking to export defence products and equipments to friendly nations like Vietnam, Thailand and others.

India has held a range of talks on the sale of indigenously developed surface-to-air Akash missile and supersonic Bramhos missile to Vietnam, the government today said. India’s private sector major, L&T has already exported interceptor boats to Vietnam whereas a large order for supply of military vehicles to Thai Army was received by Tata Motors.

“India and Vietnam share a strategic partnership. Defence cooperation, including supply of defence equipment, is an important aspect of this partnership.

“Both countries have held discussions on range of issues in this regard,” Subhash Bhamre, Minister of State in the Ministry of Defence said in a written reply in Parliament on Friday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Vietnam on September 2-3, 2016, the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister after 15 years.
As many as 12 agreements were signed during the visit which included cooperation in outer space, UN peacekeeping, avoidance of double-taxation, cyber security, information technology, information on white shipping and contract for procurement of offshore patrol vessels.

Further, both the countries agreed to elevate their current level of strategic partnership to a higher level. The relationship would be upgraded to the level of Comprehensive Strategic Partnership which Vietnam currently enjoys with Russia and China.
