Richard Freeman UKTI DSO’s Senior Police Adviser said:

Intersec 2016 is an important exhibition to showcase the UK’s world-leading security and safety equipment. UK companies are very keen to further develop business relationships with partners in the UAE and across the Gulf. This exhibition is important regionally and we are delighted to have the opportunity to engage with officials from the UAE and more widely to discuss how we can clarify requirements and enhance future cooperation in this sector”.
