01 Mar 05. 29 -31 March. Global Security Asia 2005
. In the immediate aftermath of the tragic events of September 11 and the more recent global acts of terrorism, political leaders and military planners around the world have been confronted with a new and potentially destabilising global threat which may be described through the term ” ASYMMETRIC WARFARE “. Countries are now focused on developing their homeland defence policies and systems to include anti-terrorism and counter-terrorism measures, inter-agency cooperation using sophisticated equipment and technologies. Responding to these challenges, the organisers of the IMDEX Asia Series are now launching Global Security Asia 2005 – the first combined Conference and Exhibition to focus exclusively on this new and fast expanding area of Asymmetric Warfare.

01 Mar 05. IMDEX ASIA 2005, the fifth in the Series. For this Event, is bringing the schedule back to its original May date, from 17 to 20 May 2005. AMI International, the highly respected US naval analyst, has identified Asia/Pacific as the only region in which the naval new ship construction market is growing. And it is not simply holding its own, it is growing rapidly. In fact between 2004 and 2009 investment in new ships will double from approximately US$7bn to US$14bn per year. This is in stark contrast to Europe where investment is leveling at circa US$10.5bn and the USA at $11.5bn per year. The strong acquisition programs of South Korea, Japan, China and India will be the primary contributors to this growth. However, every country in the region has plans to modernize, expand, or re-capitalize their navy, thus making the area the most dynamic for the foreseeable future.
