Acquisition Of Brahmos Missile System Affected By COVID-19 pandemic


Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana himself admitted that the acquisition of the Indian made Brahmos missile system was affected by COVID-19 pandemic.

“We really want to buy BrahMos but because of the pandemic, we lost money to buy it,” Secretary Lorenzana said as quoted by Manila Bulletin in an article dated November 30.

He noted that the procurement process was actually on advanced stage. He added that India also offered a soft loan plan.

However, the defense chief explained that “the President does not want the next administration to face numerous debts so we are actually caught in a dilemma on what to do. We could avail of the loan but we do not want to be criticized by the next administration.”
“So the entire process of procuring Brahmos was stopped because we no longer have the money for that,” Lorenzana said.

The Defense Secretary in 2019 said that the contract for BrahMos missile system for Philippine Army was expected to be signed first half of 2020.
