Posted on: April 11, 2021 | Back | Print

As part of ongoing defence industrial cooperation between India and Vietnam, twelve High Speed Guard Boats are being built for Vietnam Border Guard Command under the US$ 100 million Defence Line of Credit extended by Government of India. The first of these vessels was launched at the time of the Virtual Summit held between Prime Ministers of India and Vietnam on 21 December 2020.

Ambassador Pranay Verma was invited by the General Department of Defence Industry of Vietnam under the Ministry of National Defence to the Hong Ha Shipyard at Hai Phong on 9 April 2021 to launch and lay keel for two out of the seven vessels being manufactured in Vietnam. In his remarks at the event, Ambassador described the project as an icon of India-Vietnam Defence Partnership and reflecting India’s commitment towards defence industry cooperation with Vietnam and capacity building of Vietnam’s defence forces. He noted the importance of the project as it coincided with preparations to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of India’s Independence and 50th anniversary of India-Vietnam diplomatic relations. The project also showcases India’s domestic capabilities under #AatmaNirbharBharat bringing benefits to international partners
