UK themes announced for defence industry show

The UK government has announced its themes for the International Defence Industry Show including technology and international relations.

The UK will exhibit British technologies and strengthen ties with Poland at the International Defence Industry Exhibition. The UK Pavillion at MSPO will be lead by the British Ambassador to Poland, Jonathan Knott.

The UK delegation will be supported by Air Vice Marshall Nigel Maddox, Senior Military Advisor in the Department for International Trade’s Defence and Security Organisation. British companies are looking to forge defence equipment relationships with Polish industry, creating strong ties to improve Poland’s defence capabilities.

Jonathan Knott said: “I am very pleased at the number of UK participants attending MPSO 2019, this reflects the importance and the commitment of both the British Government and UK companies to building a strong defence relationship with Poland. The UK has a long-established track record of offering world leading value for money capabilities supported by training and logistic support. Our unique selling point is our commitment to close defence-industrial collaboration, including technology transfer. A number of UK exhibitors already have Polish partners.”

Nigel Maddox said: “MSPO 2019 is an important opportunity to discuss with the Polish Government how we can further strengthen our already close defence and security relationship. The UK themes are “Partnership and Technology Transfer” and I will be encouraging more industrial cooperation across the defence and security sectors. The UK is committed to creating the ideal environment for UK and Polish companies to work together more closely in order to build a strong defence and security industrial base for our mutual benefit.”

UK business will be on display at Hall D stand 12 on 3-6 September 2019. More information is available on the government website.
