While chairing a meeting of the state steering committee for building and developing the defence-security industry in Hanoi on September 20, PM Phuc said developing the defence-security industry will become a heavier task in the coming years given rapid changes in the region and the world as well as the fourth industrial revolution.

Therefore, it is necessary to enhance the capacity of research, designing, manufacturing, repairing, upgrading and modernising weapons, technical equipment  and professional tools, in a bid to gradually modernise the People’s Army and Public Security forces, he said.

The PM asked the steering committee, relevant ministries and departments to promote their role, responsibility and coordination to speed up the implementation of programmes and plans to fulfill targets in line with the Politburo’s direction on developing the defence-security industry in the new period.

At the meeting, PM Phuc also noted that the Government along with the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Public Security has paid attention to stepping up the development of the defence-security industry over the past time.

The industry has successfully manufactured and repaired new high-tech products, thus partly meeting the demand for weapons and technical equipment of the armed forces, reducing imports and saving the State budget, he added.
