Bahrain welcomes private investors to the defence sector as part of leadership’s vision and strategy to take the production of defence industry to the next level of excellence.
This was the crux of the media talk by National Security Advisor and Commander of the Royal Guard Major General HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa on the sidelines of Day Two of the second edition of Bahrain International Defence Exhibition and Conference (BIDEC 2019). He said “recent incidents that took place in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia opened our eyes towards the enemy of this region” and that coalition forces will enable leaders to deal with such threats.
Bahrain has produced the first indigenous armed APC ‘Faisal’, currently displayed at the BIDEC 2019. It has garnered a lot of interest from the regional and Gulf Co-operation Council delegates.
