The global military industry is a vast and hugely lucrative sector where defence spending produces some eye-watering numbers. Next week, Abu Dhabi once again takes centre stage for the world’s major manufacturers and government procurement leaders when the International Defence and Exhibition Conference, Idex, and the Naval Defence Exhibition, Navdex, take place from 17 to 21 of February.

In this week’s Business Extra Podcast, The National’s Chris Nelson and Assistant Editor in Chief Mustafa Alrawi talk about the exhibitions and what role the military industry has from a local and global perspective.

Later, the sometimes mysterious world of human resources comes under the spotlight as Sadek El Assaad, chief executive of Zeder Group, comes into the studio to talk about the evolution of HR.
