Anwar hopes Lima will enjoy similar successes in the future

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic) says that he hopes future editions of the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima) will be as successful as the just-concluded Lima ’23.

The Prime Minister said that he hopes the biennial event will continue to yield multifold returns for the country’s economic, trade, defence and security sectors.

"Certainly, there are high hopes that Lima ‘23 will further strengthen Malaysia’s position as a regional hub for the aerospace and maritime industries and realise the Malaysian Aerospace Industry Blueprint (MAIB) and Malaysia Shipping Master Plan,” said Anwar in a Facebook post on Sunday (May 28).

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, when speaking at the closing ceremony of Lima ‘23 on Saturday (May 27) said that agreements worth RM17.6bil were signed at Lima ‘23, with RM10.1bil coming from 43 defence-related contracts.

The five-day Lima ‘23 was themed "The Nexus of Asia's Maritime and Aerospace Trade” and was the 16th in a series. The next Lima is expected to be held in May 2025. - Bernama
