Welcome to this week's Newsletter
I am sure you have all studied the UK Defence Engagement Strategy, published jointly by the MOD and the F&CO. A short quote from that document might illustrate the amazing potential for the companies listed on BDEC to create business opportunities:
'In addition, the UK is leading the work to develop the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) with Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Norway which can operate as part of NATO or independently.
The UK is working with France to further develop our bilateral UK/France Combined Joint Expeditionary Force (CJEF). The UK is also part of the NATO Response Force, standing NATO naval forces and other formations. There are potential threats to national security which the UK may choose to address through maintaining an ability to cooperate with likely partners where no formal alliance exists.'
There is surely lots of scope for business in there for you all.
