2nd Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance Philippines
With President Rodrigo Duterte signing off the 2017 national defence budget of PHP137.2 billion (USD 2.76 billion) into law last December, this has marked an 18% increase in defence expenditure compared to 2016.
In addition, with the second horizon of the Philippine military modernization plan coming up in 2018, 2017 is expected to be a significant year for defence-related procurement and activity.
Riding on the huge success of our inaugural and government-endorsed Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance Philippines 2016 conference, the event this year will once again feature senior stakeholders from the Philippine government- including the Department of National Defense, Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine Navy, Philippine Air Force, Philippine Coast Guard, NAMRIA, Philippine Ports Authority, Bureau of the Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Customs, Department of Transport, as well as regional players from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
Some key areas that the 2017 conference will cover include maritime security surveillance, interagency cooperation and collaboration, maritime domain awareness, naval procurement and assets, humanitarian assistance, naval and aerial surveillance, critical infrastructure protection, EEZ protection and illegal vessel identification and tracking.
