The Defense & Security Expo Vietnam (DSE) 2019, a flagship event in Vietnam, is open from October 2 to 4 at the International Center for Exhibition, 91 Tran Hung Dao Street, in Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem district.

The event is being organized by the Economic Department and the Defense Economic Technical Industry Corporation at the Ministry of National Defense, the Department of Equipment Supplies and Warehousing at the Ministry of Public Security, and the Eifec Company, and aims to bring together key representatives and decision makers from security industries to meet and network with leading suppliers and service providers from around the world.

On 5,000 sq m, the exhibition has attracted some 200 brands in seven national pavilions: the Russian Federation, Ukraine, the US, France, Singapore, India, and Israel, along with two Zone booths from the Ministry of National Defense and the Ministry of Public Security, including Rosoboronexport, Techmash, NIIPH, UVZ, Ukspecexport, Lockheed Martin, Airbus, MBDA, Brahmos, IAI, AutoGyro, Starks Motors, Kamaz, Uaz, Arsenal, WB Electronics, TRD, Raytheon, Qioptiq, SCS Technologies, Precision Technologies, and many more. The latest products, technologies, and solutions in the defense and security industries are on display.

Alongside the exhibition, there are networking activities where suppliers in attendance can meet up with VIPs from supporting agencies, managers, the military, police enterprises, and research units.

There is also a comprehensive symposium on October 3 and 4 with a series of topics for the security and defense forces on capacity building and combat readiness.

The exhibits and seminars are in line with Vietnam’s policy of gradually modernizing its armed forces and strengthening its defense potential to maintain a military strength at a level necessary to ensure the defense and combat readiness of the defense forces. It includes a policy of expanding foreign relations and defense cooperation with other countries and participating more actively in defense cooperation activities at the regional and international levels.

At the same time, the event is also a good opportunity for cadres and soldiers of the People’s Army to directly learn about the most advanced equipment and technologies available, as part of their continuing education and professional training to improve their combat readiness.

It is also an opportunity for the ministry’s defense manufacturing enterprises to receive the transfer of repair and replacement technology and new production means of defense components and products from leading defense manufacturers and experts.

Economic globalization creates opportunities but also generates many potential factors and challenges, requiring Vietnam pay more attention to security and territorial sovereignty issues. In addition, the development of technology that narrows geographical distance through cyberspace also causes forces to cope with the challenge of non-traditional security threats such as synthetic drugs, human trafficking, environmental security, terrorism, and insecurity in network information. In this regard, the demand for equipping and upgrading modern and specialized civil security systems in Vietnam is increasing. This increased demand is accompanied by advances in science, technology, equipment, weapons, and tools to support continuous improvement and development. The holding of events like DSE Vietnam will provide a foundation for security and police units to remain updated on development trends and stay abreast of the most advanced technologies from around the world.

The event is expected to attract 5,000 visitors, including senior Vietnamese Government officials, senior officers and decision makers in the national defense and public security sectors, and industry participants.
