    1.0 Introduction

    Shaping the Defence Industry Competency

    Defence industry is a strategic component that forms an integral part in the development of the nations defence capability. A well developed defence industry contributes significantly to the availability of the state of the art technology, weapon systems and military solutions. It also provides through life support structures and services that have a bearing on the serviceability rate of the armed forces inventory. This has become more significant with the implementation of outsourcing and contractorisation. The role of the defence industry in maintaining, repairing, overhauling, upgrading and modernising military equipment has become increasingly significant. A well developed local defence industry reduces the nations reliance on foreign manufacturers and suppliers, hence building up national self dependence.

    The contribution of defence industry to socio-economic development of the country should also be recognised. Defence industry contributes towards the creation of employment opportunities, savings from foreign exchange, technology transfer, inward flow of foreign direct investments (FDIs) and dual use of technology. It also generates spin-offs to other sectors of economy. These in turn contribute to the economic well being as well as political stability of a country which is the essential ingredients of national security.

Since the industry as a whole involves the manufacturing of products for use in aerospace, maritime, defence, automotive and ICT, therefore it provides vast opportunities in the area of technology development, skills enhancements and export. The spill over effects from these activities will accelerate the development of other supporting industries

With the launching of the Industrial Master Plan in 1986, the industrial sector expanded significantly, contributing to the development of a broad industrial base, a necessary prerequisite for the developmen
