4 - 8 December 2007, the 9th International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition LIMA 2007 will be held in Langkawi, Malaysia.
The Exhibition has been held since 1991 on two independent sites. The aerospace exposition is located in the International Exhibition Centre neighboring the Langkawi airport while marine exhibits occupy the exhibition area in the port and sea area. LIMA is the world’s largest exhibition in the Asia-Pacific Region, showcasing defense technologies, and held biennially under the patronage of the Defense Ministry of Malaysia.
The Russian exposition combines more than 30 enterprises with products in two thematic sections – aerospace and marine. The concept of the combined Russian exposition takes into account the most promising areas in promoting military-technical cooperation with Malaysia and countries of the region as a whole. More than 450 Russian exhibits of military and dual purpose products, two full-scale versions of Su-30MKM in the service of the Malaysian Air Forces on a static exposition and demo flights of another two Su-30 MKM delivered earlier to Malaysia will introduce to participants and visitors of the Exhibition advantages, high combat capabilities, and reliability of the Russian weapons.
Under the Order of the FSMTC of Russia, the delegation led by FSMTC of Russia First Deputy Director A.V. Fomin, including officials of public authorities of the Russian Federation, and Heads of military-industrial enterprises, was seconded to support a consolidated participation of our companies in the Exhibition.
Arms market of the Asian-Pacific countries is one of the largest where Russia has established strong military-technical relationships with many states, including Malaysia, based on mutually advantageous cooperation and strict conformity with legislations of the counterparts.
Russia has been pursuing a long-term, productive and mutually advantageous cooperation, excluding intervention in internal affairs of partner states. The principle of mutual relations at the state level involving relevant authorized structures determines all MTC-related issues. Military-technical cooperation between Russia and the Asian-Pacific countries, largely, contributes to the regional stability, peace and security.
The Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia views the International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition LIMA 2007 as important stage in development and strengthening of the military-technical cooperation, and associated business ties between Russia and its foreign partners.
