Defence Mobility East Africa (DMEA)
Organization: IQPC Dubai
Venue: Hyatt Regency
|Event Date/Time: Nov 25, 2013||End Date/Time: Nov 26, 2013|
Internal and expeditionary challenges in the East African region have necessitated the procurement of increasing numbers of tactical mobility and logistics supply chain solutions for the rapid deployment of assets across a vast area. Coupled with this has been an increase in defence expenditure to secure borders, defend natural resources and aid in peacekeeping missions plus an international G8 commitment to fund those countries currently heavily embattled in internal conflict.
Organised by Defence IQ, Defence Mobility East Africa is formally supported by the Tanzanian People’s Defence Force and will focus on Tanzanian, Kenyan, Ugandan, Ethiopian, Mozambican and Rwandan challenges and near-term procurements plus recent experience from UNISOM and MONUSCO and wider senior representation from Nigeria, Ghana and Gabon.
The success of future operations will be predicated on the relationship East African militaries and their allies’ are able to forge with Industry.
