Mohammed bin Ahmed Al Bowardi, Minister of State for Defence Affairs, headed a delegation of senior officers and officials of the Ministry of Defence to attend the first edition of the World Defence Show in Riyadh.
Founded by Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), the World Defence Show – set to be held every two years – showcases the latest technological developments from around the globe, demonstrating defence interoperability across all major domains – air, land, sea, space and security systems.
Al Bowardi toured the exhibition and visited the UAE and Saudi pavilions. He was briefed on the latest exhibits and he thanked those in charge of both pavilions and wished them success.
The Show, featuring nearly 600 exhibitors from over 40 countries, opened on Sunday in Riyadh. Around 30,000 visitors are expected to attend the four-day event.
High-level delegations from dozens of countries will visit stands and pavilions featuring products and demonstrations from hundreds of global and local exhibitors.
