Defence Turkey: Can you briefly inform our readers about SEDEC?

Murat DORUK: SEDEC, as Turkey's first and only fair held within the scope of homeland security, was first held in 2018. The second was held online in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the third one will be held June 28-30, 2022. Organized biennially, homeland security, border security, coast/maritime security, internal security, city security, secure communication and satellite security are the topics at SEDEC within a holistic security approach. The primary goal of the SEDEC fair is to provide the opportunity to gather the requiring/procurement authorities like ministries and their sub-divisions with the industrialists performing in the security sector and defense supply chain. It also aims to provide export opportunities by bringing the industrialists together with procurement authorities and purchasing delegations from more than 50 countries across the world.
