The basic data in this Yearbook about the scale of military activity continues to be discomfiting. Military spending and arms production continue at high levels, and international arms transfers of major conventional weapons have reached their highest level since 1990. World military expenditure is estimated at $1686 billion in 2016, an increase of 0.4 per cent in real terms compared to the previous year (see chapter 9).
