A number of UAE defence companies are exhibiting latest products and technologies at the ongoing World Defence Show (WDS) in Riyadh. The show will conclude on March 9.
The event, which focuses on interoperability between systems to achieve tactical, operational and strategic objectives, has many national pavilions, including one by UAE. The UAE companies are at the event under the aegis of Tawazun Economic Council and the Emirates Defence Companies Council (EDCC).
“This exhibition allows the UAE to showcase and promote advanced defence solutions and technology,” said Matar Al Romaithi, Chief Officer of the Economic Development Unit at Tawazun and Chairman of EDCC. “Additionally, WDS will serve as an important gathering place for participants. EDCC will lead our defence contractor delegation and assist in promoting UAE-made products and services, facilitating engagement between interested international parties and our UAE defence contractors.”
Among the UAE companies exhibiting are Streit Group, Atlas Telecom, Rabdan Academy, Cable Corp, Etimad Holding Al Hamra Trading, Yahsat, Al Fattan Ship Industry, Nicomatic, Calidus and Tasleeh Gen. Trading. The EDCC companies will be joined by EDGE Group and the UAE Ministry of Defence military magazine Al Jundi.
“We wish to show how far the UAE’s industrial sector has progressed and deepened collaboration and form relationships with other international defence companies,” said Anas Naser Al Otaiba, General Manager of EDCC. “Our members will also be looking to identify business opportunities and promote their products and services.”
