Latin America's diverse geographies and its unique experience dealing with complex, dynamic insurgencies and transnational criminal networks sets the region apart from its global allies in many respects and, indeed, is critical in shaping requirements for and use of armoured vehicles for contemporary military operations and homeland security. Persistent threats to national security and public safety inside and beyond national borders necessitates a persistent need for armoured vehicles, which supply a critical blend of protection, mobility, adaptability and lethality for the military and police.
On a strategic level, the region has a significant international voice on defence and security matters. Setting a precedent to the rest of the world with its contribution to peacekeeping is just one example of this, whilst countries like Mexico, Brazil and Colombia are building advanced defence industrial bases with increased investment into S&T.
Underpinning the region's development is a commitment to hemispheric and international defence and security cooperation, and it is with this in mind that we are proud to announce our 6th annual AV Lat Am conference to be held in Mexico City - a unique forum for industry, army and marine corps commanders, heads of police, and programme managers who are unified by shared security objectives.
