Bangladesh Navy to buy five naval ships from the United Kingdom

Forces Goal 2030 is a military modernization program of the Bangladesh Armed Forces which began in 2009 and was revised in 2017, designed to the capabilities of the three services of the Bangladesh armed forces: the Army, the Navy and the Air Force.

For the Bangladesh Navy, the aim of the Forces Goal 2030 program is to transform Bangladesh Navy into a modern, well-equipped three-dimensional force capable of conducting multi-domain operations.

Under the program, the Navy has witnessed significant growth in firepower and weapon manufacturing capabilities. The expansion of the Navy's surface fleet and force size is going on simultaneously. As of 2020, the navy acquired two submarines, eight frigates, six corvettes, eleven patrol vessels, and a significant number of other surface combatants.

British Military Assistance Team had been in Bangladesh as instructors for many years.
