Horner, Deputy Director, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Commander, U.S. Strategic Command Standing Joint Force Headquarters for Elimination (SJFHQ-E) of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and the Deputy Director of its Center for Combating WMD (SCC-WMD), is the second Major General to join the ranks of expert speakers at CBRNe Convergence Asia. “The DoD generally, and DTRA specifically have made major efforts in Japan, and elsewhere in Asia, following the ‘pivot to Asia’ speech in 2011. Great strides have been made with partners in countries like the Republic of Korea, the Philippines and Japan in improving CBRN defence and we are delighted, though not surprised, to welcome Major General Horner to the lineup,” said Gwyn Winfield, Conference Producer of CBRNe Convergence Asia.
