“The Royal Navy is proud to be at the forefront of DSEI 2017, a year that marks the start of a new era of British maritime power. As the UK looks to new global economic opportunities, the Royal Navy’s historic role in support of maritime trade rises to the fore once again. With our co-hosts from the Department for Transport, this year’s maritime capability conference will explore the maritime contribution to national prosperity. DSEI will host Royal Navy warships, as well as those from partner navies, to offer a tangible demonstration of how the types of equipment on display in the exhibition might be employed in the future.
“Few other navies have such a comprehensive programme of investment, or such a bold commitment to technological innovation, as the Royal Navy. With London International Shipping Week once again running at the same time as DSEI, I look forward to what I know will be a hugely beneficial opportunity for us all to meet with so many partners from industry and academia, and with our counterparts from overseas.”
Admiral Sir Philip Jones, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff
