The 15th edition of the Langkawi International Maritime Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA‘19) is expected to put forward the latest innovations and technologies from the aerospace and maritime sectors both for military and civil applications.


A total of about 360 defence and commercial companies from over 30 nations are partaking. Turkey is by and large the largest international country pavilion followed by Russia, US, UK, China, France and Germany –a total of 12 country pavilions.


Boustead Heavy Industry Corporation (BHIC) is the biggest Malaysian exhibitor followed by the National Aerospace and Defence Industri (NADI), Muhibah Engineering Berhad and Sapura Group.


LIMA 2019 is also expected to focus on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and cyberwar elements which are now a priority in the defence sector. Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu said new companies would be able to showcase their capabilities in these fields, since “Malaysia will also be enhancing its cyber defences and the use of UAVs as our security control at sea is quite wide, from the East coast (in the Peninsular) to Sabah and Sarawak and the waters of the South China Sea, as well as in the waters of the Straits of Melaka, are used by more than 100,000 ships each year.


Lima 2019 is expected to be officiated by Prime Minister Tun.


Dr Mahathir Mohamad himself, who is also a Member of Parliament from Langkawi. The biennial exhibition, the brainchild of Dr Mahathir, was first held in 1991.
