Bird & Bird's International Aerospace, Defence and Security Group would like to invite you to a breakfast seminar titled 'The UK Strategic Defence & Security Review an Equipment & Technology Green Paper: implications for industry, investors and partners' on Wednesday 9 February 2011 from 08.00.
October 2010 saw the UK's first Strategic Defence Review for over a decade, accompanied by a consultation paper presaging major changes to the UK's Defence/Industrial policy. Rather than successfully addressing the known budget over-commitment, the SDSR process has left major questions unanswered. These include exactly what sort of future military operations the UK Armed Forces will be scaled and equipped for, which major equipment and service programmes are affordable, and whether the UK will favour or discriminate against domestic industry for future contracts.
We hope that you will be able to join us.
For further information, or to register to attend this seminar please contact the Events Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)20 7415 6000.
