INDONESIA: Defense Opportunities Surge in 2012
Despite being the fourth most populous nation in the world and a major player in Asian diplomacy and politics, Indonesia has historically given a low priority to its defense industry. Now, however, leadership is looking to reverse the trend and seek rapid modernization in just a few years. The upgrades affect all branches of the military; air, land and sea. US firms are very competitive in every realm of the defense industry, and looked to as a best in class provider. Recent changes in embargo regulations and a high level of support by the US Mission in Indonesia mean significant opportunities for US defense companies looking to do business in Indonesia.
