“The company, through its sponsorship of the second edition of the forum, stresses its pivotal role as a strategic national partner for defense industries through its effective presence in all events that are organized by the Ministry of Defense. The company participates in this forum under the umbrella of SAMI Sea, where it is scheduled to showcase its products on the marine industries and systems. SAMI also seeks to benefit from promising opportunities that such major international forums provide in a way that can boost its status as a national strategic partner for defense industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

SAMI is participating in the forum along with the top local, regional and international companies that will display their latest equipment, technologies, and systems in the field of maritime security.

According to the statement, “The event will include an accompanying exhibition and several work sessions that will attract the elite of interested people and specialists from the military and experts in the fields of technology and industry, in addition to several ministries, public institutions, global companies, and academia.”

The forum, which will be held under the theme “Protecting Marine Units and Vital Coastal Sites against the Threat of Unnamed Systems”, aims at exchanging views, discussing challenges facing marine units, coastal vital sites and means to protect them, and ways to deal with these threats and their impact on the global economy, and guaranteeing the safety of marine passages.
