Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Poland, Jonathan Knott, is leading a strong UK delegation supported by Air Vice Marshal, Nigel Maddox, Senior Military Advisor in the Department for International Trade’s Defence and Security Organisation (DIT DSO). UK companies are looking to develop new defence equipment relationships with Polish companies to identify innovative solutions to Poland’s future requirements through partnerships and industrial cooperation.

Ambassador Knott said: "I am very pleased at the number of UK participants attending MPSO 2019, this reflects the importance and the commitment of both the British Government and UK companies to building a strong defence relationship with Poland.

"The UK has a long-established track record of offering world leading value for money capabilities supported by training and logistic support. Our unique selling point is our commitment to close defence-industrial collaboration, including technology transfer. A number of UK exhibitors already have Polish partners."

Air Vice Marshal, Nigel Maddox, DIT DSO said: "MSPO 2019 is an important opportunity to discuss with the Polish Government how we can further strengthen our already close defence and security relationship. The UK themes are “Partnership and Technology Transfer” and I will be encouraging more industrial cooperation across the defence and security sectors.

"The UK is committed to creating the ideal environment for UK and Polish companies to work together more closely in order to build a strong defence and security industrial base for our mutual benefit."
