UK looks for partnership with UAE

posted on 15/11/2011: 1695 views

UK companies involved in some of the most cutting edge technology in the defence and security sectors are visiting the Dubai Air Show 2011, some visiting for the first time and others returning after a successful Dubai Air Show 2009.

The UK theme is "Partnership" as UK companies look to strengthen existing ties and build new industrial partnerships with companies in the UAE, according to UK Trade and Investment.

The UK delegation is led by Gerald Howarth, Minister for International Security Strategy. He is accompanied by Air Chief Marshal Kevin Leeson, Chief of Materiel Air in the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence, Richard Paniguian, Head of the UK Trade '&' Investment Defence and Security Organisation, and Alan Malpas, Regional Director in UKTI DSO for the Gulf.

Typhoon aircraft from the Royal Air Force are again taking to the skies over Dubai, returning after a successful display in 2009.

The UK is also presenting its latest aviation security capability, which builds on UK technologies to deliver a significant advance in aviation security.

Gerald Howarth said "The United Arab Emirates is an important ally of the UK and has been an impressive host and participant in recent joint exercises. The presence of Royal Air Force Typhoons reflects the important relationship between the UK and the UAE a relationship we very much value".

Richard Paniguian Head UKTI DSO said "We are here to encourage UK and Emirati companies to network and to identify areas of joint industrial and technological cooperation. The UK has a significant range of world class products across the air, land, maritime and security sectors and UK Industry is keen to establish enduring and mutually beneficial partnerships with the very capable industrial and technological base in the UAE. The UK wishes to be a key partner in the Abu Dhabi vision for 2030". - Emirates News Agency, WAM
