India’s state-owned Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has opened a representative office in Hanoi, Vietnam, to pursue exports in the country and the wider Southeast Asia region.
The office was opened on 13 June by India’s Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who is visiting Vietnam to take part in the fourth annual defence industry meeting between the two countries.
BEL said the new office – its first in international markets – will enable it to “address export business opportunities and to provide product support and services to users in the region”.
BEL added that the new office is in line with efforts to expand its international profile and to “give a thrust to exports worldwide, especially in Southeast Asia”.
