Assistant Director of Public Security Maj. Gen. Abdullah Mohammed Al Suwaidi pointed out that the security personnel constantly need to identify the latest products in security and latest equipment and innovations that help them perform their duties with the required efficiency. He said Milipol Qatar represents a great chance for the concerned parties from the military and security fields to discuss with the exhibitors; especially, the country is about to organize a major sporting event like the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. The MoI and the Committee for Security and Safety Operations of the World Cup are keen to provide everything the teams need to make this tournament a successful event.
Director of the National Command Center (NCC) Maj. Gen Khalifa Abdullah Al Nuaimi said that Milipol Qatar is one of the most important exhibitions specialized in providing services, technologies, and innovations in the internal security and civil defence sectors. He said that every two years, the exhibition attracts the largest companies in the public security sector. It is an opportunity for us to see the latest global police products.
“We saw many advanced security services this year that can be used and employed in our security work, especially that the internal security and public safety sector is witnessing continuous growth,” he added. Director-General of Supplies and Equipment, Brigadier Saud Al Shafi, said, “We were surprised by the response of many countries and companies to participate in the exhibition this year, even though many countries took strict measures due to the COVID- 19 epidemic.
“There is no doubt that the exhibition will contribute to providing businessmen and investors with ideas about the future of the internal security and civil defense sectors.”
