Ahmet Akyol, General Manager of ASELSAN, highlighted his company’s commitment to fostering defence industry collaboration between Malaysia and Türkiye. 

“Our participation in one of the largest defence exhibitions in the Asia-Pacific region should firmly signal ASELSAN’s dedication to strengthening ties by providing cutting-edge solutions to meet the technological needs of not just Malaysia but other regional countries as well,” he stated.

Malaysia is the hub for the growth strategy in the Asia-Pacific region

Emphasising the strategic importance of Malaysia in ASELSAN’s global expansion plans, Akyol added,  “Malaysia serves as a strategic hub for our growth plans in the Asia-Pacific. With over two decades of presence in the Malaysian market and the establishment of ASELSAN Malaysian SDN BHD in 2017, we believe we are very well positioned to capitalize on emerging opportunities and deepen our engagement in the region.”

The longstanding cooperation between Malaysia and Türkey in the defence industry provides a solid foundation for ASELSAN’s further push into the region. Both countries have expressed keen interest in further developing cooperation to leverage their joint expertise in defence technologies. This collaborative approach, which extends beyond mere purchase agreements to investments, manufacturing, and technology transfer, aligns with ASELSAN’s vision of building lasting partnerships and contributing to Malaysia’s defence modernization efforts.
