Researchers whose interest centres on the scope and pace of the global arms race are confronted with increasingly numerous indications that both qualitative and quantitative changes have been occurring recently in world trade in conventional weapons. Developing countries are slowly but surely joining the ranks of the producers and exporters to the LDCs of military equipment and military back-up services. The aim of this chapter is to present a detailed account of the most recent developments in this area which remain relatively unfamiliar in view of the secretiveness based on the pretext of ‘national security’ of these newcomers to the international arms race.
