“The Global Aerospace Summit will be a strategic platform for the defense industry to discuss developments along with key stakeholders from across the planet. We will have the opportunity to demonstrate the importance of developing robust domestic capabilities and the continuous need for investing in advanced technology and innovation. The aerospace industry will play a central role in the future of defense and we believe that bilateral ties within this sector can create the synergies needed for a safer and more secure world,” added H.E. Al Bowardi.
The UAE’s Ministry of Defense has continued to emphasize the importance of international collaboration having hosted a series of discussions with a number of countries including Kuwait, Pakistan, Australia, Comoros, France and others. The sessions have focused on potential cooperation in the defense sector.
The UAE has developed significant defense capabilities over the past twenty years, establishing a number of technology and MRO centers. AMMROC, based in Al Ain in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, is a repair facility for military aircraft, jointly owned with Lockheed Martin and the only C-130 service center in the Middle East and North Africa.
Held under the theme of ‘insights and integration’, the Global Aerospace Summit 2020 will offer a platform for the UAE to highlight its strategy of working with international partners to enhance and develop local capabilities. It will also be an opportunity to showcase methods for building national technological skills and leveraging cutting-edge solutions to achieve ambitious visions for the future.
