|Title:||Asia’s defence industries : challenges and policy options||Authors:||Bitzinger, Richard A.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences||Issue Date:||2010||Source:||Richard A. Bitzinger. (2010). Asia’s defence industries : challenges and policy options. (RSIS Commentaries, No. 115). RSIS Commentaries. Singapore: Nanyang Technological University.||Series/Report no.:||RSIS Commentaries ; 115/10||Abstract:||Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region have extensive local arms industries. However, in terms of technology innovation these regional producers continue to run a poor third to the United States and Western Europe. Latecomer China may gain the advantage regionally. But it remains to be seen whether its accelerated spending, especially in R&D, will enable it to pull ahead of regional or global competitors.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/91563
