It has served as an important platform for Pakistan to learn about and purchase defense products and equipment. This exhibition has attracted delegations from more than 50 countries. The China Pavilion, which covers an area of 750 square meters, is one of the largest national pavilions, exhibiting high-end equipment such as the Wing Loong series of drones, the Rainbow series of drones and the WJ-700 . This year, the China State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) sent a group of “China Defense” exhibitors, consisting of seven military trade companies, to participate at the event. In the China Pavilion exhibition area, the design pattern combining the Great Wall of China and the Independent Tower, an emblem of Pakistan, reflects the long-standing traditional friendship between China and Pakistan.
