The economics of the defence industry: Balancing self-reliance with interdependence with Dr Kogila Balakrishnan

    Even amid the rapid globalisation of the defence industry, many nations continue to pursue a certain degree of self-reliance, particularly in maintenance, repairs and overhaul of their major defence platforms. 

    But to what extent should Malaysia and other Southeast Asian countries aspire to self-reliance?

    Join ISIS Malaysia and University of Warwick’s Dr Kogila Balakrishnan as we discuss how countries can strike a balance between self-reliance and having their defence companies become a part of the global defence supply chain.
