Economic diplomacy – Security – Defense (28 May 2018)


The Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs will host a meeting which will bring together more than 75 companies (mostly SMEs) from the defense and security sectors, 34 military aid workers and technical experts, as well as around 20 institutional stakeholders and private organizations.

More than 700 “speed-dating” format meetings are scheduled to take place between companies, military aid workers and technical experts. With just 10 minutes to convince each other, the exercise should lead to improved mutual understanding between stakeholders in the areas of security and defense.

The Quai d’Orsay is using this type of exercise to help French firms develop their global expansion strategies.
