According to National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, India is interested most in supplying Philippine Navy’s modernization needs. In 2018, the Philippine Navy is reportedly launching a corvette acquisition program.
“They are now manufacturing ships, and tanks as well as bullets. In fact, in the past we bought artillery rounds from them. So they are capable of doing that and they want to tap the market because they know that we are modernizing the military and they want to also come in,” Secretary Lorenzana said as quoted by Philstar.com.
