ANKARA (AA) – Turkey's Anka unmanned aerial vehicle will be exhibited in a defense fair in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

Indo Defense Fair will be held from Nov. 7-10, according to a statement from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) on Monday.

"Turkish Aerospace will take concrete steps to reinforce its activities in the region, meanwhile close contacts for the promotion of its products in Indonesia have been already established," the statement read.

TAI aims to highlight its strength in the region, including Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia.

A wide range of products of TAI will be also displayed at the fair in which Turkey-Indonesia Business Cooperation Days is taking place.

Based in Ankara, the TAI is serving the aerospace and defense industries by manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles, aircraft, helicopters and satellites, and their components.

TAI was established in June 1973 under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry and Technology in order to reduce foreign dependency in the country's defense industry.
