The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) in partnership with Great Minds Events LLC (GM) and Gulf of Guinea Maritime Institute (GOGMI) will host the maiden edition of the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEC 2022) at the Burma Camp in Accra.

The event, which will be held at the Burma Hall at the Burma Camp from Tuesday to Wednesday, October 11-12, 2022, is on theme: “Strengthening International Collaboration to Combat Terrorism and Transnational Organised Crimes”.

In statement issued by GAF and signed by its Director of Public Relations, Naval Captain Ma Larbi on September 26, 2022, said the “Conference is expected to bring together delegates from the top hierarchy of Armed Forces, government, law enforcement agencies, academia, military solution providers and other stakeholders in the defence industry from Africa and beyond.”

Naval Captain Ma Larbi said the main purpose of the IDEC is to deliberate on the growing threat of terrorism and other transnational crimes that pose significant security concerns in the Region and strategies to address these emerging security concerns comprehensively.

The event is also expected to bring various international security experts to serve as speakers and panelists.
