Colombia is seeking to modernize its weapons system in order to improve its defense capabilities, according to the company. The Korean government has also been supporting expanded military trade between the two nations by further strengthening bilateral cooperation.

“LIG Nex1 is operating a local office (in Colombia) to expand its market presence in Latin America to compete as one of leading defense companies in the world,” said Lee Hyun-soo, an overseas business manager at LIG Nex1, in a statement.

“Through this Expodefensa, we will expand our export business by showing the world our capabilities.”
