The expo covers the range of services, equipment and technology related to the defense and aerospace areas and brings together leaders of various industries from throughout the world in order to showcase the latest technological innovations and promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
“Attention to biometric technologies on the African continent is raising rapidly,” commented STC Chief Commercial Officer Akop Mkhitaryan. “South Africa and Nigeria are the key revenue generating countries in the African biometrics market. African governments initiate biometric-based projects such as elector identification and biometric base of low-cost housing applicants. So, South Africa market is very promising.”
