The LIMA 2023, which took place from May 23-27, attracted the participation of 1,200 defence firms from many countries, along with 119 static and aerobatic airplanes and 40 sea vessels, thus making this event the largest ever held.

Malaysian Defence Minister Mohamad Hasan stressed that the participation of LIMA'23 is very encouraging and provides an opportunity for local and foreign companies from various countries to showcase technology and weapons as well as assets, according to the Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama).
