China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO) and the Royal Thai Army (RTA) have signed an agreement to support defence trade and related support, the Chinese group has announced.
In a press release on 27 April NORINCO said that the agreement, which was signed in China, is aimed at “deepening co-operation” on both existing and future defence programmes.
NORINCO said the accord provides assurances to the RTA that the group will provide “high-quality products and after-sales support” as it looks to expand its presence in the Thai defence market.
NORINCO has enjoyed considerable success in the Thai market in the past two years and the new agreement is aimed at supporting orders of new platforms.
