SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — With three weeks to go, senior Naval and government officers fromMalaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, New Zealand, Indonesia and more will gather on 1-2 December to discuss maritime security and coastal surveillance updates at the Intercontinental Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Jointly hosted by the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) and IQPC Asia, the 12th Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance Summit will feature keynote addresses from Vice Admiral Dato’ Seri Ahmad Kamarulzaman Haji Ahmad Baharuddin, Deputy Chief of the RMN, Admiral Dato’ Haji Ahmad Puzi bin AB Kahar, Director General for the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, Major General Guillermo A Molina Jr. II, Deputy Chief of Plans and Head of the Armed Forces of Philippines Modernization Programme, Vice Admiral Sucheep Whoungmaitree, Deputy Chief of Staff, Royal Thai Navy and more as they discuss the critical challenges and operational requirements to enhance the region’s maritime security.

We felt it was a great opportunity for IQPC to collaborate with the Royal Malaysian Navy and use this year’s conference as a regional platform for Navies and Coast Guards to come together and engage in constructive dialogue to overcome challenges in the changing maritime security environment in the Asia-Pacific region,comments Joshua Lim, Head of the Defence and Government Portfolio at IQPC.

In addition, the conference will also cover topics on technological capabilities and procurement with regard to the South China Sea situation, with leading market intelligence and research institutes including IHS Janes and RSIS providing timely updates on the situation.

Alongside senior representation and participation from the RMN, the conference will also feature over 250 delegates, including high-level military officers from MMEA, MIMA, US Navy, French Navy, Italian Navy, Indonesian Navy, and officers from Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, New Zealand, the Philippines and more.

Industry bell weathers including Airbus Defence and Space, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Selex ES, Thales, SAAB, Damen, Kongsberg, Transas, General Atomics, Hawker Pacific, MBDA, Terma, GEM Elettronica, Aerodata, Indra and more have also already confirmed their attendance at what looks to be Asia Pacific’s largest maritime security and surveillance conference this year.

Given the recent change in command of many APAC Navies and Coast Guards from Thailand, Philippines,Singapore, Malaysia and more, the conference is an excellent opportunity for these flag officers to get together and discuss new partnerships, and equally important for the industry to meet and network with them,” adds Dora Zhang, Defence Partnerships Director at IQPC.
