Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister has said that the 5th International Defence Exhibition, IDEX2001, was a big opportunity for everybody to familiarise himself with the latest high-tech in military equipment.

In a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, during the opening ceremony of the show, Sheikh Sultan said that the Exhibition was an international event which had now won international respect for being one of the most successful defence shows in the world and the most significant in the Middle East region, adding that for a high class exhibition like IDEX to be held in the UAE, places the UAE at a high position at international forums.

He pointed out that the exhibition was a strong evidence that the people of the UAE have excellent organisation capabilities, which is behind the great success of IDEX. He said that this year's show was significant for the fact that a number of bigger international military industries are among those displaying their wares at the show. "This is another proof of the success of IDEX,” he added. Sheikh Sultan had earlier before the statement toured various pavilions and wings at the exhibition ground to acquaint himself with the latest military equipment on display.
