To encourage KAI’s overseas sales effort, South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo said during his visit to the firm’s exhibition booth that the government will help domestic defense companies make inroads into overseas markets. He was in Bangkok to participate in a ministerial meeting between Korea and Southeast Asian countries.
KAI has so far exported 12 units of T-50 to Thailand since 2015. It is seeking additional orders from the Thai air force to strengthen its military power and to provide effective pilot training, the company said.
