We planned to have it delivered a year earlier than the planned time. Hopefully, by the end of 2020, we will deliver this ship to our Navy. While conducting this review, we made on-site determinations about the localisation of various products and the use of domestic products and projects. We hope that we will be assertive in terms of both design and different materials and systems. We hope it will be beneficial to our Navy. ”
