Since the launch of Emirates Defense Companies Council, we have worked to facilitate communications amongst our members and support the development of capabilities in the manufacturing sector, opening doors, creating dialogue and contributing to the economic growth of the UAE Defense industry.

Our aim is to build bridges across traditional defense industrial players and new companies, join forces with international defense innovation activities and stimulate thinking on new ways to best combine and collaborate with others and their defense industrial capabilities.

The defense industry marketplace is changing and growing at an increasing rate and as emphasis on the development of local defense manufacturing capabilities is increasing, the opportunity for EDCC members to expand their portfolio of defense products in partnership with both local and international players is similarly increasing.

Our membership is also continuing to grow, and with the unwavering support of our key stakeholders including the Ministry of Defense, GHQ and Tawazun Council, we will continue this growth in both number and influence as we endeavor to explore and capitalize on the many potential opportunities before us.

We are committed to supporting our members and their partners, strengthening their presence within regional and international markets, promoting skills and technological knowledge and creating a platform whereby companies can exchange experiences and ideas for ongoing development.
