NEW DELHI: Defence cooperation between India and Bangladesh has made significant gains in the last few years and will be expanded in the coming years including in ship building sector.

Raj Kumar, Secretary, Defence Production, Ministry of Defence, Thursday said that the defence cooperation and partnership between India and Bangladesh has made significant gains in the last few years.

Addressing a virtual session ‘India and Bangladesh-Make for the World,’ organized by FICCI, jointly with the High Commission of India, Bangladesh and Ministry of Defence, Kumar said that the close proximity of Indian shipyards to Bangladesh is an additional advantage for both the nations. “This may result in a long-term strategic partnership in production, development and maintenance. It will be a win-win situation for both the nations to achieve their common objectives. The strategic partnership between India-Bangladesh can become a pillar of regional strength and economic cooperation,” he noted.

Kumar said that India has a robust ship building industry with an ecosystem of world class public and private ship building companies. “The ships constructed by Indian shipyards are of global standards and are extremely cost effective. Our shipyards are also willing to partner with Bangladeshi shipyards for construction of platforms as per Bangladesh requirements through JVs, co-development and collaboration for both commercial and defence requirements,” he added.

Highlighting opportunities in the defence sector, Kumar stated that Bangladesh armed forces is looking for suppliers for its ambitious military modernization drive called Forces Goal 2030. Indian defence industry has been galvanized through progressive policies and procedural reforms, which has catapulted the industry to serve not only the Indian but global requirements as well, he added.

“India has a vast defence industrial base of 41 Indian ordnance factories, 9 defence PSUs, along with a vibrant private sector and over 12,000 MSMEs. Indian defence industries can offer various proven hi-tech platforms, systems, sub-systems in air, land, sea, and space applications. India can offer MRO facilities to Bangladesh and with its proven expertise in software, India can offer technological solutions in the digital field as well,” Kumar added.

India, he said, has also extended a defence line of credit of $ 500 million to Bangladesh that is already operational. “We are keen to work with Bangladesh for platforms like Akash, radars, mortars, artillery guns, ammunitions.”

Sanjay Jaju, Additional Secretary (DP), Ministry of Defence, said that the Indian defence sector has a lot of potential and further invited Bangladeshi companies to invest in this sector. “We have opened up two defence industrial corridors in UP and Tamil Nadu and both corridors will leverage existing ordnance factories and private manufactures in the region. We invite investments from Bangladesh in these corridors and explore opportunities where we can co-produce and co-develop equipment for mutual use.”

Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury, Minister of Shipping, Bangladesh said that Bangladesh is the third largest economy in South Asia with rich history in ship building. “Today, ship building is a growing industry in Bangladesh and has great potential. Since independence, Bangladesh has created a large fleet of 20,000 inland and coastal commercial vessels,” he said.

Vikram K Doraiswami, High Commissioner of India, said that there is a natural synergy between India and Bangladesh in working together to develop and leverage each other's capacities as a matter of jointly harnessing capabilities for each other. “There is an ocean of untapped potential in the maritime domain from resources to science, from shipbuilding to infrastructure. The centrality of the Indo-Pacific idea and security along with growth for all the regions underpins the notion of ensuring that the maritime domain remains free, open & accessible to all for trade and commerce,” he added.

whaaaaat the banagldeshi’s are smart enough to know that India has not produced Anything that works in its indigenous defence industry. The stuff that works is 90% imported with a 10% Indian paints job that comes off.

We cannot buy Indian military goods for strategic reasons. What India is trying to do is to take Bangladesh away from China. China is our strategic partner and India is not. This is a reality and the sooner India understands this the better for them.

If Bangladesh is interested in the ancient technique of launching and relaunching the same warship three times within the span of a decade then by all means go for it.

A country purchases its defense needs from a friendly country. Is India a friend of Bangladesh?
w
Except all the quality weapons are foreign
No not necessarily, our Navy is indigenous mostly only a few big ships in the past were ordered from Russia or UK like Aircraft Carriers but now our 1st indigenous Aircraft Carrier is being built in India.

The MMRCA-2 if succeeds will be the last time when we will buy a foreign aircraft most probably Rafale after that we won’t.

we are already going to become self reliant in all categories of trainers in a few years as basic and inter mediate training aircraft are already built only LCA SPORT/LIFT requires time to become the advanced training aircraft of IAF.

IA is buying indigenous artilleries.

yes a few Indian systems are plagued with some petty issues which once resolved will clear the way for bulk order.

like we use our own indigenous helicopter Dhruv for utility and have exported to to Israel, Turkey, Mauritius, Maldives, Ecuador, Nepal, Peru.

Our homemade SHIVALIK, Kolkata class warships are deadly.... ppl forget Indian indigenous capability.... they don't talk about such warships, dhruva, rudra, LCH choppers, success of ballistic missile program and space program, nuclear submarines arihant which is already commissioned.... not to mention aircraft carrier which is soon going under sea trials..... what experience we have earned in Tejas will help us in AMCA project enormously..... so actually we are not 90% dependent what ppl here claim.....

But our neighbours from the west love to talk BS about our systems even if it is good like they did a propaganda yesterday claiming Indian radar failed in Armenia even when not even a single radar is yet delivered to the Armenian army. The deal itself was signed in April 2020 and the conflict started in september.
