India’s automobile manufacturer Tata Motors and PT Pindad have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore the market potential of Tata armoured vehicles in Indonesia and other Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) regions.

As part of the MoU, the companies will also conduct a study to check the feasibility of locally assembling Tata armoured vehicles at PT Pindad’s plant located in Bandung in West Java.

Tata Motors Indonesia president director Biswadev Sengupta said: “This is a very important milestone for Tata Motors operations in Indonesia and is a matter of pride to be able to co-operate with PT Pindad, which is held in high esteem by the Indonesian community.

"This foray into the defence business in Indonesia is in continuation with the strides made in the logistics business in the country."
