Pakistan & Korea Selatan Akan Bekerjasama Dalam Pengembangan Fast Attack Craft
Pakistan, South Korea look to collaborate on defence production

Pakistan is seeking to upgrade the navy's Karachi Shipyard and Engineering Works by expanding co-operation with South Korea, a senior Pakistani government official told IHS Jane's on 17 October.

Although details have yet to be decided, the official said a major focus of the programme will be on "enhanced facilities to produce smaller boats like fast attack craft".

The official's comments followed a 10 October meeting between Song Jong-hawan, the South Korean ambassador to Islamabad, and Rana Tanvir Hussain, Pakistan's minister for defence production.

According to a report subsequently carried by the state-owned Associated Press of Pakistan, South Korean company Poon Song has shown interest in upgrading the Pakistan Ordinance Factory (POF).
