Key Policy Areas
International cooperation on major acquisitions continues to grow as an integral part of the defense marketplace. Consequently, those government policies and regulations that influence the ability of U.S. firms to export products, services, and technology, and the ability of foreign firms to participate in U.S.-led development programs have an increasing impact on the health of the defense industrial base, its ability to meet U.S. military needs, and U.S. national security.
The International Division provides a means for member companies to maintain currency with respect to emerging trends which could effect their approach and their success in export markets. Conferences, seminars, and small group meetings are held to review and discuss rules, regulations, and laws pertaining to the highly dynamic international defense trade area and to keep abreast of market trends and opportunities. The division also identifies issues which affect a broad cross-section of member companies and then establishes a dialog with the relevant government agencies to promote change which would alleviate problems.
