Dear exhibition Participants!
Ladies and gentlemen!
I am proud to welcome you at the 4th Azerbaijan Defence Exhibition "ADEX-2022", which will once again be held in the hospitable and beautiful city of Baku, the capital of the ancient Land of Fires, in a mysterious country - the embodiment of European wonder and Eastern charm.
The ADEX exhibition has traditionally become a successful meeting point for defence companies and customers. The event while bringing under its umbrella the world known defence companies has taken its rightful place among significant international events, where technological breakthroughs have gained widespread popularity in the sphere of defence & security in showcasing the high-end technology & know-how and a broad range of sophisticated weaponry & munitions.
As a result of successful reforms carried out by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev, victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Ilham Aliyev, the decent successor of the Nationwide Leader Heydar Aliyev’s internal and foreign policy, who had great merits in the establishment and development of national state traditions, the remarkable achievements have been attained in various fields in our Republic. Along with other areas, the successful development of the Ministry of Defence Industry in enhancing the country's defence capability is the result of the successful policy and attention of the Azerbaijani President.
The Ministry of Defence Industry of the Republic of Azerbaijan also contributed to the glorious triumph of our victorious Army in the 44-day war to restore historical justice and international law, which opened a new page in the history of Azerbaijani statehood under the wise leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Ilham Aliyev. Thanks to this brilliant victory, our army has etched its name in gold on the most glorious page of the history of Azerbaijan. As part of this victory, we will take the necessary measures to equip our Army our source of pride with more modern weapons and equipment, as well as to strengthen the national defence industry and to boost the local production of military products.
With the support of the Azerbaijani President and his regular attendance, ADEX Exhibition, which will be held for the fourth time, is an effective platform in terms of establishing business relationships and new areas of cooperation for well-known military-industrial enterprises of friendly and allied nations, influential foreign companies and organizations that will attend the International Exhibition from all corners of the world.
This year’s exhibition will follow the same trend by showcasing the achievements of the national defence industry, being a vivid reflection of its sustainable development in recent years, while creating ample opportunities for its participants, experts and visitors to get familiar with new products & technologies, conduct face-to-face negotiations, share knowledge & experience, establish effective business relations with ally & friendly countries to bolster military-technical cooperation and inking lucrative contracts with potential customers and suppliers.
The “ADEX-2022” exhibition, being attended by high-ranking representatives from international military delegations, will be featuring new development trends and directions in the field of defence industry and will affirm competitiveness & capabilities of both Azerbaijan’s defence industry and that of reputable world companies with deep rooted experience in the field.
I am deeply confident that the event will contribute to maintaining security and establishing new business relationships and cooperation opportunities for all “ADEX-2022” participants.
Once again, I am proud to welcome the exhibition participants at the amazing city of Baku, on the coast of the Caspian Sea, and wish you fruitful work during the exhibition.
