Japan is undertaking efforts to deepen understanding of the defence industrial capabilities of Indonesia and India, with a view to pursuing military technology programmes with the two countries and possible defence trade, Jane’s has learnt.
Since late August, Japan’s Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Agency (ATLA) – a division under the Ministry of Defense (MOD) – has held two separate forums with representatives from the defence ministries and industries of Indonesia and India to promote collaboration.
Such co-operation relates to industrial capabilities, as well as related policies and strategies. In recent notices published by ATLA, the agency said that the forums are intended to support the respective sides’ understanding of defence industrial matters, and to contribute to future defence equipment and technical co-operation.
