Mission

The International Division serves as the association's focal point and coordinating element for the identification, study, and resolution of management and business problems associated with government policy and practices in the areas of foreign military sales, international defense, and globalization of U.S. industry.

The International Division provides a means for member companies to maintain their currency with respect to current and emerging trends in this ever-changing arena. The division conducts conferences, seminars, embassy briefings, and small group meetings which review and discuss rules, regulations, laws, and programs pertaining to the highly dynamic international defense trade arena, and to keep abreast of global market trends and opportunities.

The division is active with respect to those large-scale issues that affect a broad cross-section of member companies. It establishes a dialog with the relevant government agency and promotes constructive change. For example, the division formed the U.S.-Japan Industry Forum for Security Cooperation, an executive level group, at the sponsorship of the under secretary of defense for acquisition and technology and the division co-chairs, with the Navy international programs office, an IPT, chartered by the secretary of the Navy to “reengineer” the Navy foreign military sales system.

The thrust and frequency of division events attracts senior government speakers who lend their time and expertise to our programs. Their participation provides division members with an opportunity to solicit advice and exchange views directly with senior officials, both political and technical, from within DoD, State, Commerce, and Congress.
