Indonesia and the United Kingdom have held a joint conference in Jakarta to promote defence industrial collaboration, the Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on 15 March.
The MoD said the conference followed a UK defence industry trade mission to Indonesia, in which representatives from several UK firms visited and held discussions with state-owned Indonesian defence companies.
These local companies included electronics specialist PT Len Industri, land systems firm PT Pindad, aerospace manufacturer PT Dirgantara, and naval shipbuilder PT PAL.
Hadiyan Sumintaatmadja, the secretary-general of the MoD, said in a press release that the MoD is looking to promote an expansion in co-operation between Indonesian and UK industry through joint production, joint development, and joint marketing activities.
