SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – February 13, 2019 – Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 returns to the Sands Expo and Convention Centre from the 2nd to 4th April. Jointly supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs Singapore and the Ministry of Interior of France, this year’s show will be the largest show-to-date with over 350 exhibitors and nine National Pavilions across 40 countries.
The global homeland security threat is real and imminent. As part of this year’s objective to showcase; and create public awareness and outreach, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 will be organising a special three day conference to gather leading experts, professionals and academia on this dynamic subject. The topics include overviews of the current regional terrorist threat landscape, transnational crime such as the war-on-drugs, and how international agencies can collaborate together with the increasing use of new technology and innovation to counter and combat crimes.
Ultimately, a strong and robust security consciousness is critical in the fight against terror threats. From authentication and enhanced access control; to the latest on cutting-edge surveillance and video analytics; the application of Information Technology and data protection in public and private sectors; weapon systems, drones and the use of robotics as well as innovative anti-terrorism measures and counter-measures, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 serves as the established platform to engage and to promote cooperation across diverse stakeholders.
This year’s Conference theme, A Collaborative Response to Criminal Innovation, will focus on the immediate and future challenges faced by government security forces ranging from organised crime to regional terrorism.
This landmark conference will be chaired by Mr Khoo Boon Hui, former Commissioner of the Singapore Police Force and ex-President of INTERPOL. Mr Khoo is an advisor to INTERPOL and is also a Senior Fellow at Singapore’s Civil Service College and the Home Team Academy. He holds multiple advisory as well as board positions in various top commercial and public organisations.
Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 will feature an impressive line-up of prestigious speakers such as Laurent Nunez, State Secretary from the French Ministry of Interior; Bernard Cazeneuve, former Prime Minister of France; Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Michel Cadic, Chief Scientist French Ministry of the Interior; and Ali Soufan, Chairman & President of The Soufan Group, USA. Mr Soufan is a former FBI agent involved in multiple high-profile anti-terrorism cases and is one of the world’s most distinguished experts on homeland security.
These leading experts in their respective fields will attract the world’s security practitioners together onto a common and credible platform in Singapore.
