Malaysia’s 2015 Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition LIMA held in March, was the busiest ever, according to show organisers, with contracts and documents worth RM9.3 billion (A$3.36 billion) signed over the three trade show days.

The organisers said that the activity represented a 121 per cent increase over the 2013 show and the signing of seven contracts, five memoranda of understanding, six letters of intent and six letters of acceptance were witnessed by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin bin Hussein during the period.

This year was the 13th edition of the biennial series of events, held on the resort island of Langkawi and was held between March 17 and 20, with the two days following open to the general public.

The exposition is held at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC) located adjacent to Langkawi’s international airport and a series of maritime demonstrations are also held at the nearby Awana Porto Malai, which this year played host to 65 naval vessels of all sizes from 13 different countries, including Australia.
