Defence Ministers and military officials participating at the 8th edition of the international Defence Exhibition IDEX 2007 have commended the UAE's expertise in organising what they described as "one of the best defence shows in the world.”

The fact that the 2007 edition of IDEX has attracted over 900 defence manufacturers around the world stands as testimony to the resounding success of IDEX, they said. "The show is one of the best in the world in terms of exhibitor turn-out as well as in terms of facilities provided", said Defence Minister of Azerbaijan.

Prince Faisal bin Hussein, Special Assistant to the Jordanian Chief of Staff said IDEX 2007 had grown in tremendously as compared to previous shows.

Describing IDEX as the biggest in the Middle East, Prince Faisal predicted further expansion in 9th edition of IDEX in 2009. "The UAE has gained an enormous experience in organising defence shows.

This is quite evident in IDEX 2007, which is also one of the best organised shows", said General Abdul Rahim Mohammed Hussein, Sudanese Minister of Defence.

For his part, Chief of Staff of the Qatari Armed Forces Hamad bin Ali Al Attiya underlined the importance of IDEX exhibition, saying that it is an important forum for GCC countries. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
