All eyes are on the fast spreading Novel Coronavirus codenamed COVID-19. After three months, the outbreak has been declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, affecting over 150 countries around the world. The pathogen has infected more than 200,000 people around the world, and the number is increasing. Nations around the world has taken a drastic, yet necessary measures to address the spread of the deadly disease. Borders are shut, citizens are confined to their own premises as part of governments locked-out/locked-down orders to curb the virus from spreading further. Some countries including in the Asia-Pacific are even considering declaring a state of emergency to counter the spread of the disease. As part of the stern measures, defence forces. have been deployed, to assist the police to ensure that the orders are followed accordingly.
For the defence community, this catastrophe has impacted the industry as a whole – trade shows are postponed, and some organisers even cancel their biennial events altogether for this year. This, without doubt has a serious push on effect on the global defence industry as a whole, as new technologies will not be able to demonstrated live, and business meetings have to be confined to teleconferencing, using the many tools available in the market today. Some countries and some industries will be more affected than others, while some may not be affected at all. Uncertainty is the new norm but the world will turn.
While the situation remains fluid and uncertain right now, and the global defence community is keeping their fingers crossed on what happens next, we at Asian Defence Journal (ADJ), together with our sister publications, Perajurit and ADJ’s Training & Simulation are within a click away to provide the industry with the latest defence news and trends right here in the Asia-Pacific region.
