Conflicting signals as South Korea’s defence minister confirms rule change
South Korea’s minister of national defence has announced that “a certain percentage” of the weapon system parts would have to use domestic products. The aim is to boost the level of SME participation in defence projects. A DAPA spokesman confirmed to us that “we do not expect significant changes.” The reply seems to rebuff the scope of policy changes we reported in CTO 10, which we obtained from a leaked official document.
