To the participants of the 4th Azerbaijan International Defence Exhibition
Dear exhibition participants and guests!
I greet you on the occasion of the 4th Azerbaijan International Defence Exhibition, ADEX-2022, and wish success to all participants.
The ADEX exhibition, which has already become a traditional event has been transformed into an important platform for developing military-technical cooperation and demonstrating the most advanced weaponry, equipment, and technologies.
The exhibition brings together the world's well-known military industry enterprises, acclaimed foreign companies and organisations, official delegations, and specialists, thus creating great opportunities for establishing business relationships and signing new contracts.
ADEX-2022 is the first international defence exhibition organised by Azerbaijan after the brilliant victory in the Patriotic War. Demonstrating the local military equipment that proved itself during real combat operations at the event further increases its significance.
The combat experience of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, which conducted the war of the 21st century, is presently diligently studied by the military centers of developed countries. In highly complex terrain conditions, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces broke through the fortified defence lines by leveraging the most modern combat weapons and forced the enemy to surrender in just 44 days.
The historical victory of Azerbaijan showed that to achieve the goals set in the military field, it is imperative to build a modern army and implement consistent and determined measures to increase the country's military power.
The Republic of Azerbaijan always attaches particular importance to increasing the Armed Forces' combat capability and strengthening the material and technical base. Our country is developing cooperation with the world’s advanced countries in the military-technical field, and likewise expands its capabilities in the field of the national defence industry.
Currently, Azerbaijan closely cooperates with the major companies from over 50 countries in aviation, navigation, device manufacturing, and other fields. Hence, the volume of the products produced in our country’s defence industry enterprises is increasing yearly.
We will further strengthen the Azerbaijani Armed Forces and the defence capability of our country in the coming period, paying special attention to the production of modern weapons, military equipment, ammunition, rear service assets for support and logistics, and other material means.
I am confident that the ADEX-2022 exhibition will create a favorable opportunity for exchanging useful experiences and establishing new partnerships and will positively contribute to increasing the scientific and technological potential of the Azerbaijani defence industry.
