Ahead of the Government’s White Paper on 'Equipment, Support and Technology for UK Defence and Security' and the report from the Defence Reform Unit, this event will look at the future of the UK defence industry and whether the Defence Industrial Strategy can respond adequately to the challenges facing the indigenous industrial base. It will also examine investment in the workforce, in particular the quantity and quality of workers and jobs.

This event forms part of the series on The Economics of UK Security and Defence Policy.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.
