Protected Mobility Solutions for West African Forces

Internal and expeditionary challenges in the West African region have necessitated the procurement of increasing numbers of armoured vehicles and protected mobility solutions for the rapid deployment of assets across a vast area. Coupled with this has been an increase in defence expenditure to secure borders, defend natural resources and aid in peacekeeping missions.

Armoured Vehicles West Africa focuses on Nigerian, Ghanaian, Burkina Faso, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger army and police force challenges and near-term procurements plus recent experience from UNOCI and Peacekeeping Centres.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn about armoured and tactical vehicle requirements from key decision makers in both West African militaries and police forces
  • Ensure your solution remains front of mind at a time of 18% increased defence spending across the board
  • Demonstrate to regional forces that you take their challenges and requirements seriously enough to attend or support this event in order to learn more at the time to get involved
  • Explore the resurgent market of West Africa at a time of a great internationalisation and increase in procurements and spot purchases
