“In this major exposition, the most important exposition of defence material in USA, Greece is present, with the Greek pavilion represented by the Greek state and private companies, great companies of armament systems, but also medium-size companies, which contribute to the development of our defence industry, through their cooperation with US companies.
A defence industry which is enhanced through the intergovernmental agreements and the material supply agreements by the USA. A great work is conducted in Greece with the acquired capability to technologically support the new assets which constitute part of the US technology in the Balkans and the Middle East.
I would like to congratulate the parties engaged in this exposition and state that the Ministry of National Defence and the Hellenic Government are by their side because that is the meaning of the end of crisis: synergies, industrial development, operation of industries which had previously gone out of business, enhancement of small and medium-size businesses. Greece has become the geopolitical centre of the Southeastern Mediterranean in the field of defence industry”.
