Naval shipbuilding in Indonesia is developing and becoming more self-reliant with the support of the government, which aims to increase industry capability by applying technology transfer as defense offset policy. This research studies countries similar to Indonesia in applying technology transfer as the method to increase self-reliance in the naval shipbuilding industry. Specifically, the research compares India, Malaysia, and South Korea in applying technology transfer and other policy to boost self-reliance for the industry. Indonesias government has emphasized using technology transfer as the strategy to build its industrys capability to construct naval ships. Yet many countries have had only limited success using this approach to build a defense industry. Thus, this research considers what other strategy can be applied by the Indonesian government to support industry self-reliance and increase its technological capability in building naval ships. The study underlines the importance of research and development for self-reliance in the defense industry, enabling Indonesia to compete with other shipbuilder nations.
