Indonesia’s Naval Development and Maritime Cooperation
According to the author a lack of resources for national defense is hampering the Indonesian Navy’s ability to sustain and enhance naval cooperation initiatives. Furthermore, the interoperability between the Indonesian Navy and its counterparts in the region continues to be undermined primarily due to capability shortcomings and despite agreements to conduct coordinated patrols, a lack of a coherent strategic plan on the type of naval presence that would shape the regional environment remains elusive.
