“ADAS (Asian Defense and Security) 2014 comes at exactly the right time in the Philippine defense modernization process, providing an effective environment for the exchange of ideas and information that will help to set the agenda for future modernization programs,” ADAS said in its website.
According to ADAS, “The developing political scenario in the South China Sea has brought the Armed Forces of the Philippines to the fore and as a result, the Armed Forces are now focused on how they can be best modernized and strengthened in order to fulfill their primary role of maintaining the territorial integrity of The Philippines.”
Philippines is “one of the most active and interesting defense and security marketplaces in Southeast Asia.”
“Invitations will be extended to VIP Delegations from the Asia Pacific region. Over 80 VIP Delegates who are potential buyers and representing relevant Defence, Security and Crisis & Disaster Management Government Agencies and Industries will be invited to attend the Show.”
