The volume of deliveries of major conventional arms was 22 per cent higher in 2005–2009 than in 2000–2004. The five largest suppliers the USA, Russia, Germany, France and the UK accounted for 76 per cent of exports. China, India, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates and Greece were the largest recipients. A pattern of reactive arms acquisitions is emerging in several regions. In North Africa a significant increase in the volume of Algerian arms imports has been followed by large Moroccan orders; this is likely to influence Libyan plans. The rebuilding of Iraq’s armed forces has been affected by the economic crisis and declining oil prices.
