Every year new export controls, regulations and laws are introduced and it is pivotal that defence contractors comply with these new regulations.

Following the success of Defence Exports in Europe, the conference is heading to the Asian market to discuss the major Defence Export controls and regulations in the region. SMi is therefore proud to present Defence Exports Asia-Pacific, which will be held in Singapore on 1st & 2nd February 2012. With speakers from across Asia and the three U.S. Departments of Commerce, Defence and State, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

With key topics being discussed from the latest ITAR and EAR regulations to the latest treaties being introduced in the region, take this chance to network with the key policy makers and participate in interactive panel discussions on all the talked about export controls. Listen to industry examples of how to comply with the new regulations, controls and laws so your company does not get caught out.
