Bangladesh, who shares its border with India, will now get assistance from India in designing warships for their Navy. The public sector undertaking Defense Company Garden Reach Ship Builders (GRSE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Khulna Shipyard Limited (KSY) of Bangladesh for design and construction of warships.

The information was also shared in parliament on Wednesday by Minister of State for Defense Subhash Bhamre. Last month Naval Chief Sunil Lanba also visited Bangladesh and where he discussed many issues and emphasized on developing deeper relations.

“KSY, an independent commercial enterprise under the Ministry of Defence, Government of Bangladesh, and operated by the Bangladesh Navy, had earlier expressed keenness to develop its skills and know-how for design and construction of ships at its facility at Khulna and other subsidiary locations…,” said Minister of State for Defense, Subhash Bhamre.

Both the countries have also set up Indian Navy-Bangladesh Navy Coordinated Patrol (CORPAT).
