5 September 2019
The reason any country is invited to the Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition is because it brings together manufacturers of defence and security equipment and prospective purchasers. It provides an opportunity for UK industry to demonstrate the wide range of products to potential overseas customers.
Hong Kong has recently confirmed that it is not attending.
