His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, toured the 18th edition of the Dubai Airshow, which kicked off on Monday.

The world’s premier event for the aerospace, space and defence industries is taking place at the Dubai World Central (DWC) from November 13 to 17.

It's the largest ever edition of the show, with over 1,400 exhibitors from 148 countries.

Sheikh Mohammed hailed the sustained growth achieved by the event throughout its history and its role in supporting the global aviation sector in gaining a new growth momentum.

"Multi-billion-dollar deals inked during the exhibition have strengthened the future of the global aviation sector and enabled it to navigate challenges. Dubai is the place where challenges turn into opportunities and adversity opens new pathways to success," said His Highness.

During the tour, Sheikh Mohammed stopped by the pavilions of the UAE’s EDGE Group, Strata Manufacturing, and Emirates.
