Large French Naval Defense Industry Presence at LIMA 2017 in Langkawi Malaysia
The 14th edition of LIMA, the international maritime and aerospace exhibition, taking place in Langkawi from the 21st to 25th March 2017, will be presenting a large French naval defense industry offer.
Rendez-vous in Langkawi: Visit the French pavillon at LIMA 2017
The French pavilion is organised by GICAN, the French naval industry association.
As a privileged partner in Southeast Asia in the field of defence, Malaysia has maintained industrial cooperation with France over the last ten years, with both major industrial groups and small and medium-sized businesses. The acquisition of submarines, helicopters, transport aircraft, equipment and high technology is consistent with this idea of long-term collaboration, where French businesses play a key role.
Malaysia acquired 2 Scorpene-type submarines commissioned in 2009. As part of the Second generation patrol vessels (SGPV-LCS) program, 6 Gowind corvettes will be constructed locally through technology transfer. Finally, Malaysia is the first export client of the A400M transport aircraft.
For LIMA 2017, 19 French companies are taking part in the exhibition, with 14 of them presenting their know-how on the French pavilion federated by the GICAN.
