The agreement signing took place at a Saudi Arabia ndash; UK industry event in London, in the presence of senior shareholder representatives, including Ahmed Al Khateeb, chairman of SAMI, and Sir Roger Carr, chairman of BAE Systems, said a company statement. SAMI 's investment in AEC, the Riyadh based firm specialising in engineering, development, manufacturing, repair and technical support across defence, Information Communications Technology (ICT), energy, cybersecurity and high tech fields, at the local, national, regional, and international levels, comes as part of SAMI 's ongoing efforts aimed at increasing local defence manufacturing in the kingdom, in line with the directives of the Saudi Vision 2030, it said. Al Khateeb said: ”The foundation for the institution and growth of our company was laid three years ago with the announcement of the Saudi Vision 2030. Our journey began in 2017, and since then we have forged ahead with the backing of our country 's leadership, steadfast efforts of our team and support of our partners. ”Today 's agreement marks a significant milestone for us, as we advance our efforts to build a strong, dynamic and sustainable military industries sector in Saudi Arabia, ” he said. Al Khateeb added: ”Defence electronics is a mission critical element of the defence sector, and the acquisition of AEC firmly establishes SAMI 's presence on the global defence industry map. Furthering our aspirations in the sector, it will help us drive local content and stimulate economic growth. ” Established in 1988 under the Saudi Economic Offset Program, and under the ownership of a number of companies, including international defence, aerospace and security company BAE Systems, AEC has played a pioneering role in the fields of modern electronics, manufacturing, system integration, and repair and maintenance services for nearly three decades, thereby becoming a major regional player renowned for innovation. AEC specialises in the design, development, manufacturing, maintenance and repair of several advanced industry and military electronic systems, devices and equipment such as smart electricity and water meter systems, security protection systems for the vital infrastructure, industrial control systems, sight systems for the Typhoon aircraft, jammer and interference systems for the F 15 aircraft, electronic units for the F 16 aircraft, land equipment and training simulators for the Hawk 165 aircraft, and sight systems for the Tornado aircraft, among others. AEC 's evolutionary growth has seen the company play a key role in localising military manufacturing, deploying smart technologies, and accelerating industrial and commercial growth, while maintaining a Saudization rate of over 80 per cent and 100 per cent completion rate across more than 1,000 projects. AEC has developed its own framework, Aligned Integrated Methodology (AIM), which provides a standardised approach to governance and delivery, and comprises methodologies in Portfolio, Program and Project Management. Over the past few years, AEC has witnessed a steady growth in its sales year on year, with net sales in 2018 rising to SR2.07 billion ($551.91 million), compared to SR1.925 billion ($513.25 million) in 2017, and SR 1.65 billion ($439.92 million) in 2016. Following the acquisition, AEC will form the core of establishing SAMI 's original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agnostic defence electronics and indigenous defence technology solutions business division, cutting across all of its business streams. In addition, SAMI 's total number of employees will significantly increase to reach 2,200, as a result of the acquisition. In addition to facilitating Transfer of Technology (ToT), boosting local production, and deepening engineering, design, development, maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) work, the acquisition will enable SAMI, through AEC, to develop its own mature products to help achieve its strategic goals set for the year 2030. Since its inception in mid 2017, SAMI has been leading Saudi Arabia 's efforts in developing self sufficient defence capabilities with its fast growing portfolio of military products and services spanning four business divisions ndash; aeronautics, land systems, weapons and missiles, and defence electronics. ndash; TradeArabia News Service

Bihar s AES deaths are symptomatic of policy apathy towards public health standards and failure to create awarenessThe real headline behind the death of over a hundred children in Bihar s Muzaffarpur is the utter lack of priority towards addressing primary health issues in a backward pocket that is living in denial of itself and the ruling class denies it even exists. So disembodied has reality become from our national narrative that losing a hundred young lives was disgustingly set aside by the Bihar Health Minister during a containment strategy meeting in favour of statistics of an ongoing cricket match. And that reality is of encephalitis assuming epidemic proportions in the dust bowls of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh every season, both of which serially account for 35 per cent of child deaths in the country. The disease is just the manifestation of a chronic illness called malnutrition and low immunity, which makes the locals vulnerable to outbreak of brain fever, particularly the young and the old. The fact that this has been occurring cyclically since the mid 1990s shows how we have grossly misdiagnosed preventive and primary healthcare in the rural hinterland and failed to communicate combat strategies among the community. Had the children been given proper vaccines, had they access to equipped primary health centres and received first line treatment, the deaths could have been avoided. Had there been proper awareness campaigns, then it would be found that neither encephalitis nor deadly litchi toxins from neighbouring fruit farms or hypoglycemia were the cause of the deaths. However, each worked together in varying degrees to exacerbate a malaise called collective apathy, covered up as a mystery disease.
