DescriptionThis U.S. - Finland Defense and Security Industry Seminar, hosted by NDIA and the Association of Finnish Defence and Aerospace Industries (ADFA), aims to enhance cooperation between U.S. and Finnish government and industry.
An array of senior government officials from the Ministry of Defense and the Finnish Defense Forces will share their thoughts about national priorities and measures being taken to support them.
Finland uses open competition for nearly all of its defense procurement, and buys most of its major systems from abroad. Therefore, it is essential that competing foreign companies know the policies, legislation, capabilities, and role of the Finnish defense industries. This seminar will give a broad insight to these topics and on how to do business in Finland.
Agenda topics include:
- Procurement Outlook and Business Practices
- Future Technologies
- Opportunities for Future Collaboration
NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
