What can Asia learn about UAVs from South America?

I came across this article when I was doing my usual desk research. According to the author, Columbia is the earliest country in  South America to adopt UAV for border security and surveillance. Many countries within the continent, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay has started using unmanned technology for border control and security. On the other hand, it was reported that oil loss has also been halved from theft and smuggle upon adoption of UAV in Ecuador. It is notable that Latin America is expected to spend $200 million more on UAV within the next decade.

There are much parallel which can be drawn between Asia and South America in terms of economy and political activities.  Despite the differences among countries in both continents, Asia is relatively similar to South America as compared to other continents. What insights can Asia learn from this study?

On top of that, studies have shown that global security spending has almost doubled in the past decade. This amount is also expected to grow much within the next decade. Is this the golden investment opportunities for venture capitalist to explore the Asian commercial unmanned industry?
