The year 2017 will be intense for the defence sector in Brazil. The Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces delivered updated versions of the National Defence Policy (PND), the National Defence Strategy (PND) as well as a white paper on national defence for the consideration and approval of the National Congress. In addition, the Federal Government has already announced, for example, a R$ 450 million (US$ 141.1 million) investment in the Border Integrated Monitoring System (Sisfron) and the March launch of the geostationary Communications and Defence satellite (SGDC).
 
 

These announcements are against this backdrop that the Exhibition LAAD Defence & Security 2017 will take place from April 4 to 7 at the Riocentro in Rio de Janeiro.

The exhibition, held every two years, brings together domestic and international companies, equipment and services suppliers and technologies for use by the military and police forces.

An important featured area of LAAD 2017 is Public Security, which brings together some of the industry's leading experts in the area for working meetings that will take place during the event. The agencies that have already confirmed meetings during the conference are: The Colégio Nacional de Secretários Estaduais de Segurança Pública (The National College of State Secretaries of Public Safety, (CONSESP), The Conselho Nacional de Comandantes Gerais das Polícias Militares e Corpos de Bombeiros Militares (The National Council of General Commanders of the Military Police and Military Fire-fighting Corps - CNCG-PM/CBM), The Conselho Nacional dos Corpos de Bombeiros Militares (The National Council of Military Fire-fighting Corps - LIGABOM), The Conselho Nacional de Chefes de Polícia Civil (The National Council of Chiefs of Civilian Police - CONCPC); The Conselho Nacional de Dirigentes de Perícia Criminal (The National Council Directors of Criminal Investigation - PERÍCIA), The Polícia Rodoviária Federal (The Federal Highway Police - PRF); The Polícia Militar do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (The Military Police of the State of Rio de Janeiro - PMERJ) and the Polícia Civil do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (The Civil Police of Rio de Janeiro - PCERJ).

"The defence and security sectors work very closely together. In their operations they use the most modern solutions and technologies available. Specifically referring to Brazil, which represents more than 40% of military spending in Latin America, these sectors have shown substantial growth in recent years, given the demands for modernization and re-equipment of the armed forces in Brazil, through strategic projects," says Sergio Jardim, General Director of Clarion Events Brazil, the organizer of LAAD Defence & Security 2017.
