Pakistan’s Shifting Defense Procurement Practices
By Aaron Lin and Shane Mason
Shane Mason sat down with Aaron Lin to discuss his recent white paper, Pakistan Looks East: Why Pakistan is Turning from Washington to Beijing for Defense Equipment. The paper examines Pakistan’s defense procurement options since the US ended military assistance to the country as recompense for Pakistan giving safe-haven to terrorist organizations like the Taliban and Haqqani Network. As Pakistan looks to non-Western alternatives for procurement, Shane identifies what this means for the American defense industry in the region.
