His visit constitutes the premiere of the Spanish Navy within the Executive Committee, and its objective is none other than to be able to integrate this very important institution into the fair.
Through the Spanish Navy, Navalia intends to be a meeting point with other international Navies, especially those from American continent countries, considering, moreover, the great name and prestige that the Spanish Navy has (through Navantia) and its buildings in the military segment.
