Exposec-DefenseWorld conference has been established as an important dialogue forum between experts, representatives from international organizations and national decision makers, to generate proposals and aim for solutions to major defense and security issues.


Tsomokos S.A. and the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce are co-organizing for the 8th consecutive year the annual EXPOSEC-DEFENSEWORLD CONFERENCE, "MIGHTY DEFENCE – MIGHTY GREECE”.

The constant change in geostrategic relationships creates the need for a modern and flexible national defense and security strategy, to be implemented in an environment of complementary actions and special co-operations and will effectively fortify the country from external and internal dangers. The forces needed for strategic planning and crisis management at national level and political will exist. The necessary consensus and constructive cooperation are the requirements needed to address the ever-changing and complex threats which jeopardize democratic values and affect the safety of citizens.

The priorities and the framework of action of the political leadership of our country and the developments in the fields of defense and security in the international environment are presenting during this annual conference. It is a fact that the dynamics in the wider Eastern Mediterranean region are changing, creating an unstable and dangerous political landscape which our country is called to manage effectively, directly and with diplomatic flexibility, and supporting at the same time our national interests and the international peace and stability.

The role of the Greek defense industry as an important factor in the implementation of programs by the armed forces and a valuable partner in international programs (co-operations, co-productions, cutting-edge technology transfer) will be discussed during the conference and analyzed by distinguished speakers from Greece and abroad.

Topics to be discussed at the conference include:

- Defining Mechanisms for Closer Defense Collaboration between Greece and the United States
