Malaysia has enjoyed a relatively stable post-election period; a sweeping victory for Prime Minister Najib Razak's political allies within the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) following the latest party election suggests that we could see further progress on fiscal reforms in 2014. This should help cement internal stability. Externally, the country faces tensions over China's activities and territorial disputes in the South China Sea region; some Islamist groups are also operating in Malaysia and neighbouring states. However, overall defence spending and procurement has been relatively static, which the 2014 budget
seeing a cut in money available for military development.
Malaysia's regional security situation also remains generally benign; the country is also enjoying a burgeoning defence relationship with the United States. A January 2014 meeting in Washington between the country's two defence ministers should likely result in more joint-forces exercises.
