London (PRWEB UK) 2 September 2014

With Japanese military contractors taking their first steps toward selling weapons abroad since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe relaxed an export ban; the Prime Ministers of France and India recently discussed ways to strengthen defence trade and Australia and Japan set to sign a trade deal which should in turn lead to 'evolutionary' changes in defence ties; the shift in defence trade towards the APAC region continues to increase.

Join in the debate at the 9th annual Defence Exports conference and hear from key leaders discussing the latest trends within the APAC region. Presentations include:
