International security exhibition holds in Cote D’Voire
The Ivorien capital, Abidjan would play host for three days beginning from January 22 to security stakeholders from various African countries as part of the fifth edition of the SHIELDAFRICA, an international security and defence exhibition.
The event, which holds at Ecole de Police d’Abidjan, is being organised by COGES Africa, an Ivorien firm and sponsored by Ministry of Interior and Security of Cote d’Ivoire.
Over the years, SHIELDAFRICA has remained Africa’s security and defence event of reference that offers land-sea-air solutions to protect Africa’s development, ensure security to economic development, restore and maintain peace to prevent and combat natural and industrial disasters.
The exhibition also helps to ensure the safety of cities to develop necessary services for public institutions and private bodies.
Public and private sector security and defence stakeholders from all over Africa will meet to connect with industry players across over the world, offering equipment, services and innovative solutions tailored to their security needs.
With the theme: ‘Secured and controlled land, sea & air borders, conditions for the development of Africa,’ the exhibition promises to stoke high-level discourse on border-related issues.
Organisers of the three-day event believe a strong Africa in a globalised world requires open borders that are safe and controlled by modern technologies and equipment.
Border control is one of the issues of national and international security.
It requires modern and efficient African customs administration and dynamic effective regional cooperation structures between countries.
This Fifth Edition of SHIELDAFRICA will address the multiple Security needs of the continent with a special focus on border security.
