Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) has launched an office in Pakistan to boost its profile in the South Asian country. TAI announced the opening of the office on 24 December. The ceremony was attended by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
TAI said the office is based within Pakistan's National Science & Technology Park (NSTP), which itself was inaugurated by Khan in early December. The NSTP is located within Pakistan's National University of Sciences and Technology in Islamabad.
TAI said its presence at the NSTP will support its efforts to increase collaboration with Pakistan industry and academia. In July 2018 the Turkish government signed an agreement with Pakistan to supply 30 TAI T129 attack helicopters to the Pakistan Army's aviation corps.
