I was somewhere in the Philippines in 2006 when I witnessed with my bare eyes that some of Philippines-based airlines (Asian Spirit airlines) used Indonesian-made CN-235. That time, i admit, i was surprised because all those while' I'd kept on thinking that CN-235 only sold domestically inside Indonesia.

Then I started to learn that Indonesia managed to sell some of CN-235 aircraft to neighbors like Malaysia, Brunei, and Philippines. Bram, a good reader of GNFI residing in Singapore, gave me a link describing that CN-235 has been sold worldwide beyond Asian continent's border. Here's the list:
