The one-day forum at the Air Force's HQ in Cairo was attended by high-level delegations from different countries and a number of military experts.
The forum offered an opportunity to highlight the crucial role that air power plays in defending Egypt’s skies, particularly the importance of advanced weapons.
According to the forum’s website, “the programme will also include technical presentations with the latest technology and solutions that are currently propelling air power players into the forefront of international air dominance.”
The event is also a key platform for Egypt's Air Force to develop strategies to help the country maintain its prominent role in the MENA region.
The forum also reflects the Armed Forces’ interest in holding international military gatherings in Egypt.
Coming on the heels of the forum, the second edition of Egypt's Defense Expo (EDEX 2021) will kick off on Monday and run through Thursday.
