India will open the first defense plant abroad. The country is named

Indian edition The Economic Times reports that India intends to distribute its own military-technical production outside the country. It is reported that the Indian government has in fact confirmed earlier information in the Central Asian media that India plans to open one of its defense plants in the Central Asian region.

The country selected for the project will be Uzbekistan.

India will open the first defense plant abroad. The country is named

It is not reported what kind of weapons weapons India is going to produce in Uzbekistan.

If the project is really implemented, then the Indian defense industry in Uzbekistan will be the first overseas production for New Delhi.
From the material:
Such a project will help India find a foothold in Eurasia against the backdrop of growing Chinese expansion.

Consideration of the issues of project implementation is taking place against the background of deepening trade and technical and technical contacts between New Delhi and Tashkent. In particular, the parties reached agreements in the field of military medicine, as well as in the field of military training. It is planned to exchange experience between military personnel of various types and types of troops of India and Uzbekistan.

Last week, the Foreign Minister of India visited Tashkent, which met, in particular, with the Minister of Defense of Uzbekistan.

      Without agreements with Russia, such a question could hardly be resolved. Our enterprises have sanctions. And who and what is doing in Uzbekistan - try to check. hi

      "Yes, you're right, but the opposite is possible."
      In Uzbekistan, the task has been set to reach the level of countries that are not only consumers of military-technical products, but also their producers. The goal is, firstly, the satisfaction of domestic needs, and secondly, export.
      So, the goals of the agreement on the development of military-technical cooperation with Russia are to further deepen mutually beneficial cooperation in the military-technical sphere, to improve the system of equipping with promising types of weapons and military equipment.

      This is the share of Uzbeks that Indians pay for, for which they will get access to our technologies. Uzbeks will receive their defense industry. Well, we are a little money from the database, and not from the remote sensing.

    The Uzbeks were lucky .. By the way, the Indians lowered the Uzbeks in the sense of the final result, the Indians took on those things that even the Chinese do not do anymore. I buy staples for a furniture stapler .. The manufacturer is a Chinese company, and the place of production is India .. And two resellers in Russia ......

      China has relied on quality and high technology ... Everything goes to Vietnam, Myanmar, India, etc. Recently, factories of China were closed, with the purpose of revision and control - the party gave landmarks in production .. try disobey ...
      Not immediately, of course, but the Chinese will close all the "slag" in production ..

    I wonder what will open?
    Production of shiny hardware, daggers, and possibly tea. India itself doesn’t buy weapons from anyone. But military-technical production can be understood as various goods.

    Here's how it goes ... Hindus felt that China was conquering Central Asia, which would be bad for India in the future. So they decided at least something to spoil the Chinese. The decision to establish closer ties with Uzbekistan cannot be explained by anything else. It is difficult to foresee how this can play against us, but we don’t need to expect good from the Uzbeks.
