New Research Report “Defense and Security in Malaysia” Now Available at

LONDON – The Malaysian defense industry has been progressing but at a slow pace, specializing in manufacturing of small arms, shipbuilding and explosives. Its main defense concerns are Singapore, with its large and highly mechanized army, and, to a lesser extent, Indonesia. The growing Chinese influence in the region of the South China Sea is also important to Malaysia.

The biggest threat to security Malaysia by far are Wahhabism and Shia Islam, which should be kept under supervision to ensure that they do not lead to extremism following Bin Laden's death. Recently, both the Indonesian and Malaysian governments have outlined their desire to see multilateral discussions of traditional security issues.
