Leading UK security companies visited Guatemala and explore opportunities

The companies met with local businessmen, government authorities and shared their experiences at a public event. The forum, entitled “Safe Cities”, showcased examples of integral security and the application of the latest technology in risk analysis and prevention. The companies visiting Guatemala were:

Rapiscan Systems (non-intrusive security)
G4S (security systems)
Inmarsat (satellite and mobile communications)
Buddi (monitoring bracelets)
Indigo Vision (visual solutions for security needs)
Marble Aereo (border surveillance)
Leonardo (aerospace)
Hensoldt (naval security)

The visit aimed to better understand the Guatemalan authorities’ plans for improving security at national and municipal levels, and assessed the country’s business environment in light of potential deals or partnerships as a result of the mission.
The British Embassy in Guatemala and the British Chamber of Commerce promoted the visit as a mechanism for strengthening the economic and bilateral relationship following the UK’s departure from the European Union. The visit was also a chance to explore opportunities within the recently ratified UK – Central America Association Agreement, which is due to be implemented in 2021, after the implementation period.

Nick Whittingham, British Ambassador to Guatemala, said: "This visit was a wonderful opportunity to showcase some of the leading UK technology and security companies and provide them with a platform to develop key partnerships in Guatemala. The UK is a global leader in these sectors, and the delegation shared innovative solutions that are useful to create smart and safe cities that lead economic and social development".
