Following the huge success of the 2 editions, 3rd Africa Air Force Forum returns on the May 2024.
The forum serves as a regional platform for advancing air force capabilities that will help build pillars of bilateral partnerships. The gathering will help countries with the opportunities needed to promote stability in their respective sub regions and to shape the development of air forces on the continent more broadly. With the key motive of accelerating air force superiority, the forum will host discussions on the prospects of air power in Africa, impact on internal security operations, importance of air force in counter-terror operations along with the key technology capabilities required to take advantage on every mission.
Join us at the forum, which will bring together Africa’s key Air Force Chiefs and top leadership from the region, industry experts and government officials to discuss challenges faced and the progress made by the air force communities today and for the future.

Ortho International was incorporated in Dakar, Senegal in 2006. Since then, it has been operating successfully in defence and security, business development and trade, public works and engineering.
Its core mission is indeed to promote major civil and military projects in Africa through its direct involvement as well as the cooperation with major international players.
In the military field, Ortho International secured access to the African markets to a number of leading-edge defence systems and technologies through its collaboration with several leading industries, including Leonardo, Fincantieri, Iveco Defence Vehicles and Magirus. In the civil field, it is worth to mention its participation in building or renovating several harbours, airports, roads and social houses in Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone.
The company expertise was built on the professional skills of its founder and CEO, Cheikh Ndiaye. Senegalese by birth, in 1989 he began working in Italy for Fantuzzi Group, a leader in the field of harbour facilities, of which he was named Sales Director, West Africa in 1995 based in Gambia. In 1996, he started his own entrepreneurial path by creating Trade Italia Ltd based in Banjul. In 2006, he went back to his home country and founded Ortho International.
Today this company can rely on a highly qualified team of professionals, whose competences range from general management to strategic marketing, from finance and administration to training and engineering.
In addition to this strong team, Ortho’s key strengths span from its strategic and forward-looking approach to the in-depth knowledge of the African markets, from its financial soundness to a truly multicultural mindset.
