    As one of the largest defense trade shows in the region, Singapore is an opportune venue to promote U.S. interests in Asian defense market.

    The United States State Department is at the Singapore air show this week to help U.S. defense contractors to make inroads into the Asian market.

    “I’m responsible for the conduct of our defense sales across the globe but with particular reference, at least over the next few days, to the Indo-Pacific,” State Department principal deputy assistant secretary for Bureau of Political-Military Affairs Tina Kaidanow told reporters on Feb. 5.

    “This is an increasingly important region of the world for us. This is something we are really committed to developing these partnerships both in the bilateral sense but also in a multilateral sense.”

    As one of the largest defense trade shows in the region, Singapore is an opportune venue to promote U.S. interests in Asian defense market. “Over the next few days I will be speaking both to representatives of the individual countries that will be here at the show but also to some of our U.S. companies and to others so it’s a real opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to it,” Kaidanow said.
