EDEX 2023, which took place in Cairo from December 4th to 7th,

could see radar technology, virtual reality for training, passive surveillance
systems or systems for reconnaissance, electronic warfare and anti-drone

of Industry and Trade, together with the Ministry of Defence and the Jagello 2000 association, succeeded this year in creating a project that, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the existence of the independent Czech Republic, represents the Czech development of the defence industry in this very period. After the IDEX trade fairs in Abu Dhabi and DEFEA in Athens, the successful presentation of Czech companies from the defence industry ends this year with the EDEX trade fair in Cairo,” said Rudolf Klepáček, Director of the Department of Export Strategy and Services of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic.
The connecting element was again a video presenting
successful Czech projects in the field of the defence industry, which premiered at the IDEX trade fair in Abu Dhabi and was also presented at the DEFEA trade fair in Athens and IDET trade fair in Brno.
