KUALA LUMPUR, April 19 ― The Asian Defence Services (DSA) and National Security (NatSec) Asia 2018 exhibitions are proof that Malaysia is on par with other countries in terms of defence and security, says Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
He said the country was equal in terms of the technology used in the police e-reporting system and possession of new types of weapons for the General Operations Force like the Advance Colt Carbine ― Monolithic (ACC-M) to replace the Colt M16A1 weapon.
He added the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) and the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) displayed many defence assets with state-of-the-art technology at the exhibition
“DSA and Natsec Asia 2018 drew praise from international representatives and delegates from all over the world.
“It’s an extraordinary achievement for the Government of Malaysia and I am very proud to be part of it,” he told Bernama at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) here today.
Mohamad Fuzi said RMP and MAF always prioritised the country’s defence and national security aspects and it was evident with the organising of DSA and Natsec Asia 2018, where many matters were discussed, in particular, to enhance defence and national security.
In addition, he also welcomed industry players and defence-related companies to collaborate and participate in the DSA and Natsec Asia in 2020.
Yesterday, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein announced that the DSA Exhibition and Conference, as well as the 17th NATSEC would be held from April 20 to 23 in 2020.
The exhibition at MITEC drew the participation of about 1,500 defence-related companies and 350 delegates from 45 countries, including South Korea, China, Japan, Australia, Pakistan, Russia and Indonesia.
The four-day event, which started on Monday and targeted 40,000 visitors, served as a platform for defence and security management worldwide to exchange ideas, while providing industry players the opportunity to market their products. ― Bernama
