Kogila Balakrishnan is Undersecretary of the Defence Industrial Division for the Malaysian Ministry of Defence and speaks here about Malaysia's plans for armoured vehicle procurement. Growth and modernisation of the civilian auto industry largely mirrored that of the defence industrial sector - throughout the 1980s and 90s. There emerged a 'dual use' focus of civilian firms that led to greater defence production. Today, the automotive sector for defence production falls under the Malaysian MOD and plans for future platforms have emerged in an organic way from civilian pockets of industry.
