Indonesia is looking to expand defence industrial ties with Myanmar as part of an effort to boost military exports to its Southeast Asian neighbour.
A delegation from Indonesia’s Defence Industrial Policy Committee (KKIP) visited Myanmar from 11-13 September to promote closer industrial ties as well as a selection of Indonesian defence products, said a statement by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Jakarta.
The delegation was led by Indonesia’s Deputy Defence Minister Sjafrie Sjamsoeddin and included government officials and representatives of 10 Indonesian defence companies, the MoD said.
The statement added that the Indonesian government had supported defence trade between the countries by offering Myanmar financial assistance through the state-owned export financing agency, the Indonesia Eximbank.
