Second week with this focus – today we have added an action called for by CAAT, below.
The bi-annual DSEI arms fair is due to be held at the London EXCEL centre between 14-17 September. It is supported by the Ministry of Defence and the UK Defence & Security Export Ministry. They expect 36,000 visitors from 114 countries. Their website promotes the event as a chance to “do business, enter the supply chain, meet buyers of your products.” The UK Minister for Defence Procurement says: DSEI is showcasing the best of British defence tech-nology and innovation on a world stage. Companies exhibiting include BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and Thales. Worth looking at the event website. https://www.dsei.co.uk
