Monther Tayeb, Director of Communications, BAE Systems KSA said; “Our presence at DSEI provides us with an ideal opportunity to showcase the wide range of products and advanced technology that we have to offer. The needs of our customers around the world are very diverse and a recent focus for the organization has been to support local manufacturing, which is evident in one of our most important customers, Saudi Arabia. The announcement of the Saudi Arabian Government’s vision of ‘Vision 2030’, has meant BAE Systems KSA has supported efforts to encourage local manufacturing and was one of the first companies that put the transfer of manufacturing capabilities to In-Kingdom at the heart of its strategy. The exhibition was an ideal opportunity to highlight these efforts and to emphasize the continuous partnership for ‘Vision 2030’.”
