The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) is set to host the maiden edition of the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEC 2022) next month in Accra.
To be hosted in collaboration with Great Minds Events LLC (GM) and Gulf of Guinea Maritime Institute (GOGMI), the event would be held at the Burma Hall in Burma Camp from Tuesday, October 11 to Wednesday, October 12, 2022.
It would be under the theme “Strengthening International Collaboration to Combat Terrorism and Transnational Organised Crimes.”
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the GAF Director of Public Relations, Naval Captain Michael Addo Larbi, and copied to the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday.
He said that the conference would bring together delegates from the top hierarchy of Armed Forces, Government, Law Enforcement Agencies, Academia, Military Solution Providers and other stakeholders in the defence industry from Africa and beyond.
“Various international security experts will also be in attendance as Speakers and Panelists,” he added.
Naval Captain Larbi indicated that the IDEC was aimed at deliberating on the growing threat of terrorism and other transnational crimes that posed significant security concerns in the region and strategies to address these emerging security concerns comprehensively.
