At the event, the Vietnamese delegation explored the product development trends, technological advances, and solutions in the defence sector of countries around the world, enabling it to make advice to the Ministry of National Defence in building and developing the domestic defence industry.

The show provided a chance for Vietnam to learn the way to organise a defence exhibition serving the Vietnam International Defence Expo 2024 slated for December 19-22, to which the delegation took the occasion to invite international businesses to attend.

Held by the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI), CANSEC is the largest international defence and security exhibition in Canada, which has been organised annually since 1998.

The exhibition introduces modern, leading technologies, products and services for the army, navy, air force, aerospace and joint forces. CANSEC is also a place to introduce technologies and products for rapid response forces, border management agencies and special operations forces.

This year, the event featured 280 booths from leading firms such as Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Hanwha, CAE, General Dynamics, and Thales.

It drew 250 international delegations and about 4,500 visitors.
