Streamlining logistics and procurement in the age of joint operations
Military operations are increasingly carried out by coalitions rather than single national actors, making the already complex process of procurement and logistics even more complicated. The Middle East has not been excused from this trend either, with action in Yemen recently carried out by a coalition of nations. With increased GCC military cooperation on the regional agenda, this trend looks set to continue, necessitating new thinking on military logistics and procurement.
Discuss this and more at the 3rd edition of the Military Logistics and Procurement Kuwait conference from the 28–29 November, officially supported by the newly formed Armament & Procurement Authority of the Kuwait Armed Forces, as we search for robust solutions to the challenges of logistics and procurement in the modern age.
With Kuwait’s parliament recently approving an additional defence budget of over US$10bn to support additional procurements, don’t miss this opportunity to meet and network with senior officials from a brand new authority responsible for these procurements at a time when they will be about to embark on a period of major spending.
The objective of this event is to pool together logistics and procurement professionals as well as selected suppliers of components and maintenance services to the Kuwait Armed Forces.
