MORE than 100 assets from the aerospace and maritime industries will be featured at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2023 (Lima ’23) next month.
Alpine Integrated Solution Sdn Bhd executive director Muhammad Aqlan Pacleb said there would be 35 to 40 maritime assets for visitors to feast their eyes on.
“There will also be four to five air shows involving the Russian Sukhoi, August 1st (China), Black Eagles (South Korea) and Jupiter Aerobatic Team (Indonesia),” he said.
Alpine managing director Anita Jacobson said Lima ’23 is expected to receive about 45,000 trade visitors and 250,000 members of the public.
“For the first three days, from May 23 to 25, the exhibition is only open to trade visitors. We provide opportunities for those who travel from abroad or within the country to meet with industry players to discuss matters related to their businesses,” she said.
“Lima ’23 will open its doors to the public on the last two days (May 26 and 27).”
Themed “The Nexus of Asia’s Maritime and Aerospace Trade”, Lima ’23 is set to return with bigger shows this year after a four-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 16th edition of the event involves two main ministries, namely the Defence Ministry for the maritime and aerospace defence industry and the Transport Ministry for the maritime and aerospace commercial industry. – Bernama, April 16, 2023.
