Paris, 15 June (STA) - Slovenian defence companies and the Defence Ministry will present their products and technology at Europe's biggest defence and security fair, Eurosatory, in Paris at a single stall. The fair opening on Monday features more than 1,000 exhibitors and attracts the big players in the industry.
Slovenia's defence industry is small, highly specialised and hi-tech. As opposed to defence industries in other countries, all defence companies in Slovenia are in private hands, said Jože Renar, the head of the Defence Industry Cluster.
He underlined that export is of exceptional importance for the companies because the country's market is very small. The joint stall will feature companies Arex, C-Astral, DAT-CON, EM.Tronic, Le -Tehnika, Trival Antene and the ministry.
The joint exhibition of six companies and the ministry is sponsored by the SPIRIT agency for the promotion of enterprise, investment and tourism.
