KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – BAE Systems, the leader in global defence, security and aerospace, today confirms its participation in the 13th Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) Exhibition, to be held from 17th to 21st March 2015.
“The key focus for BAE Systems this year will be centred around our strategy to develop a local presence through the strengthening of partnerships, both new and existing. Our attendance and objective this time is aligned to the focus of ASEAN in both Security and Economic areas while also addressing our significant investment to date in Malaysia and the desire to expand our portfolio across the region,” said John Brosnan, Managing Director, BAE Systems, South East Asia.
At LIMA this year, BAE Systems will once again demonstrate its long term presence in Malaysia, where it has located its South East Asia regional headquarters, through its close relationships with Malaysian industry. As part of this ongoing commitment, the company looks to further cement its ties and support the nation’s Economic Transformation Plan through partnerships with innovative SMEs, government agencies and key academic institutions.
LIMA will see the world’s most advanced multi-role combat aircraft, the Eurofighter Typhoon – engineered by BAE Systems and its three European partners – once again be displayed on Malaysian shores through the Full Scale Replica of the aircraft. In addition to the Eurofighter Typhoon, BAE Systems is promoting a wide range of technologies and products across the Air, Maritime and Cyber domains, including the Hawk advanced jet trainer, naval guns with the 40Mk4 and 57Mk3, the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS), Type 26 frigate and Offshore Patrol Vessels.
