Marc Cagnard, Middle East Director at Business France said: “France has a high capacity to innovate and seize the initiative, an exceptional R&D and a network of cutting-edge laboratories. Technical expertise across the security spectrum, together with strong leadership on skills ranging from mathematics and algorithms, to imaging software, identification and cybersecurity. French expertise at INTERSEC supports the protection of individuals and strategic infrastructures in the Middle East by focusing on fire and rescue, safety and commercial safety”.
French equipment has been tested and approved by numerous international institutions and governments.
Outstanding engineering skills and industrial processes stemming from the worlds of defense (radar, integration, etc.) and digital technology (biometrics, smart cards, etc.)
These are strengths that need to be highlighted to firms in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf region as a whole, in a climate that is highly favorable to the security sector: power stations and oil complexes must be secured, while sites and individuals alike must be protected at the World Expo in Dubai in 2020 and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022, to mention just a few examples. More than ever, French expertise is a key partner to those needing to address safety and security issues.
