According to the organizer, more than 1,800 exhibitors from 60 countries participate in this event, presenting a variety of equipment, vehicles, and systems dedicated to peacekeeping and security.
Vietnam’s Ministry of National Defence has been taking part in the exhibition since 1998, to update on new technologies and scientific advancements from armies around the world, as well as to seek cooperation opportunities.
As part of the visit, the delegation held meetings with Lieutenant General Thierry Marchand, head of the Directorate of Security and Defense Cooperation under the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Brigadier General Geoffroy de Larouziere, Deputy Chief of French Army Staff in charge of foreign relations; and Brigadier General Caroline Salahun, Deputy Head of the Directorate of International Cooperation in Asia-Pacific under the Directorate General of Armaments of France.
At these meetings, both sides expressed their delights at the progress of defense cooperation between Vietnam and France, hoping to further strengthen the relations in the coming time, especially in training, military medicine, and UN peacekeeping.
On this occasion, Nghia invited representatives from the French Ministry of Armed Forces and French defense businesses to attend Vietnam’s first International Defence Expo 2022, scheduled to take place in December 2022.
