The Ministry of Military Production is set to take part in the 13th round of the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) 2017 held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, between 19 and 23 February.
This would be the first time for the ministry to participate in the exhibition with a number of its products manufactured by the ministry’s subsidiary companies.
Minister of Military Production, Mohamed Al-Assar, and an accompanying delegation left on Saturday to attend the opening of the exhibition. About 1,300 companies from 28 countries will also be attending, including companies from Australia, Austria, Belarus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, and Korea.
IDEX is held every two years at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. It is the only international exhibition for defence products in the Middle East. Through the exhibition, companies present their latest technologies in land, sea, and air defence and arms. It is considered an important meeting place for governments and companies to meet and strengthen their relations.
