Rabat – Morocco has participated in the fifth International Security and Defense Exhibition (ShieldAfrica 2019) from January 23 to 24 in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.
The event discussed various topics under the theme of “protection and border control,” and gathered international security experts, defense officials, police and civil protection, experts in military Secand paramilitary armaments, and representatives of global security companies.
In total, 120 exhibitors from some 30 countries participated in the event.
Morocco was represented by “The Tactical” company, which defines itself as an “integrator of security solutions, security and defense.”
Farouk Arroub, CEO of the Tactical, stressed that his company’s contribution is part of Moroccan cooperation with the African continent.
In an interview with MAP, he said that this participation aims to showcase the place that his company has forged “not only in Morocco, but on the whole African continent,” where he is planning to do cooperative projects with 16 countries.
The security equipment “made in Morocco” provided by the company presented “relevant and competitive price-quality ratio.” He said his company noted “special” interest by visitors in their exhibited equipment.
The Tactical was also the only Moroccan company present in October at the “Milipol Salon Qatar,” a prestigious gathering of security experts in the Middle East.
