Quotes about the fairs IDET, PYROS and ISET 2017


Miloš Zeman, President of the Czech Republic
I welcomed the invitation to IDET as I believe that the arms industry is an industry just like any other and arms exporters must be supported just like all the others.

Martin Stropnický, Minister of Defence of the Czech Republic
The Army and the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic strongly cooperate on IDET, I take this as a matter of course and I will especially appreciate if IDET gets visited by as many citizens as possible. IDET has several dimensions and first of all I wish to express how immensely important it is for our citizens to know that they have an army, what the army does and what arms it is equipped with – so that they know what their taxes are spent on. In today‘s rather complex security situation this is all the more important.

Josef Bečvář, Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic
The army is present at every IDET edition. This year, there are close to three hundred soldiers here who support the exhibition and fifty pieces of equipment, i.e. ground and air force equipment. This is a good opportunity to show how the army has evolved and what equipment it uses. The public can see how funds are spent on the defence of the state. And we feel really at home here.

Jiří Kuliš, CEO, BVV Trade Fairs Brno
Unfortunately, there is no ideal world of good. That is why there must be an army, security forces and security fairs. I believe that the IDET/PYROS/ISET fairs will contribute to improving our security.

Jiří Hynek, President of the Defence and Security Industry Association of the Czech Republic (AOBP)
At the trade fair we signed an agreement between AOBP and our Hungarian counterpart, the Hungarian Defence and Security Industry Association, which aims at closer cooperation. Furthermore, at the Czech-Austrian Forum I invited our Austrian colleagues to join this agreement and support us in our efforts. I have some concerns over the current ideas of the European Commission to set up the European Defence Fund and over its impacts on small and medium-sized enterprises in small countries. We want to protect our industry and we wish to invite other countries, such as Austria, Slovakia or Slovenia to join forces to counterbalance pressures of large corporations.

Miroslav Tóth, Head of Foreign Police Department, Regional Directorate of the Police of the South Moravian Region
The Police of the Czech Republic has focused its exhibition this year on introducing the specific work performed by the Foreign Police Service, which is not so visible to ordinary citizens. Under the working title “Migration” we wanted to introduce to the public what technology we use to protect the state borders and how it would work if we were to detain a group of refugees. The visitors were most interested in testing the technology at the registration point we set up in our exhibition stand. From our point of view, IDET was a success, a large number of visitors arrived and a lot of young people asked about the police work. We also had an HR manager from the Police of the Czech Republic present here.

Milan Kladníček, Director of the City Police in Zlín and Chairman of the Collegium of City Police Directors of the Statutory Cities and the Capital of Prague
City police from 16 cites have introduced their diverse activities at the security fairs in Brno. Even at first sight it is clear that the needs and equipment of the police officers vary according to the location where they operate. We had the opportunity to present individual city police forces of the statutory cities to the general public as well as to security experts, which I consider very important. This is the first time in 25 years that we have made this joint form of presentation.

Fethi Etem, First Secretary of the Turkish Embassy in Prague and Deputy Ambassador
We take part in various defence trade fairs around the world, with IDET being one of the prominent ones. Turkey and the Czech Republic cooperate within NATO and, at the same time, our defence contractors cooperate individually. Turkey has been buying light weapons of Czech production for a long time since the times of Czechoslovakia. Therefore, our cooperation is nothing new. We are pleased to be a regular participant at the IDET fair and this year we will even become the partner country. This confirms the emphasis we place on the cooperation between the Czech Republic and Turkey in all areas including the defence industry.

Dušan Navrátil, Government Cyber Security Authorised Officer
I would like to acknowledge the cyber security secondary school competition. We face a huge shortage of people, IT specialists and therefore it is good to start at secondary schools and I hope that it will continue at universities.
