Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 12, 2020: BAE Systems is set to be a lead exhibitor at next week’s Kuwait Aviation Show 2020, taking place between the 15 and 18 January near Kuwait International Airport.
A world-leader in defence technologies, and a long-term partner of the State of Kuwait, BAE Systems is a silver sponsor of the Kuwait Aviation Show.
Mr. Mark Simpkins, Regional Vice President Middle East, BAE Systems, said: “BAE Systems is delighted to once again take part in the Kuwait Aviation Show, having exhibited at the inaugural event in 2018.
“At this year’s show the company will highlight BAE Systems’ continued commitment to supporting the Government’s 2035 Vision to transform Kuwait to an international hub for business and commerce. The company will also promote its industrial position in Kuwait and how that is set to be enhanced in the coming years.
“The BAE Systems team looks forward to meeting and engaging with our friends and partners during the Kuwait Aviation Show 2020 and showcasing the many ways the company continues to support Kuwaitisation, particularly in the air sector.”
Following the opening of its office in 2008, BAE Systems’ presence in Kuwait was underpinned by long term investments and a commitment towards contributing to New Kuwait Vision 2035, especially in the areas of STEM and empowering young Kuwaiti youth.
The company has partnered with several government and private organisations in Kuwait since 2008 to deliver STEM training and workshops to hundreds of Kuwaiti youth.
These events provide young people with critical skills that are crucial to the future of Kuwait and achieving its ambitions while inspiring them to pursue further education and careers in different STEM fields.
Most recently, BAE Systems partnered with the Ministry of Education in November 2019 to deliver a week-long STEM workshop around Renewable Energy which successfully engaged more than 800 students.
