JAKARTA-(IDB) : Indonesia and Canada have outlined an intention to enhance bilateral defence industrial collaboration, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Jakarta said on 14 March.
According to an MoD statement, defence officials of the two countries - led by Indonesia's Deputy Defence Minister Sjafrie Sjamsoeddin and Canada's ambassador to Indonesia Donald Bobiash - said the two countries would explore potential opportunities for defence trade and related industrial co-operation.
Defence trade between the two countries in the past has largely featured Indonesian purchases of Canadian-made military aircraft parts and engines. For instance, the Dirgantara N-219 light transport aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-61 engines.
