LANGKAWI: “Ministers (Defence Ministers) come and go, the success of the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2019 (LIMA’19), however, is due to all the parties involved,” said Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu (pic).

“I will try to improve LIMA further in future,” said Mohamad, who headed the event with the Transport Ministry (MOT).

“LIMA’19 this time was assisted by the secretaries-general of both ministries (Mindef and MOT), Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) chief as well as the MAF officers and men to ensure its success,” he said, commenting on LIMA’19 which ended yesterday.

He attributed the success to the close cooperation of all MAF, Home Ministry and MOT personnel.

“Apart from that, I would also like to thank the media for giving extensive and positive coverage to raise the image of LIMA’19,” he said.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad described LIMA’19 as one of the best ever organised.

LIMA’19, which began on Tuesday and concluded yesterday, involved 406 companies – 206 local and 200 foreign – in the defence industry. — Bernama
