Royal Malaysian Navy In Dire Need Of Ship Upgrade

The government is allowing the resumption of the 2011 RM9 billion project to construct littoral combat ships helmed by Boustead Naval Shipyard to protect economic livelihoods, according to Defence Minister Dato’ Seri Ismail Sabri. The project is being probed for corruption after it stalled in 2019. Why has this project been delayed for so long? We tap writer and defense blogger Marhalim Abas for insight.
