Oleg Hladkovskiy: We are changing approaches to the functioning of the defense-industrial complex for our army to become one of the best in the world
The 26th the International Land and Airland Defense and Security
exhibition "Eurosatory-2018" is taking place from June 11 to 15 in Paris.
The Ukrainian delegation is headed by First Deputy to the Secretary of
the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleg Hladkovskiy.
Mr. Hladkovskiy discussed with the heads of the leading world defense
companies of NATO member countries the prospects of expanding cooperation as a
guarantee of successful rapprochement of Ukraine with the Alliance.
"Currently, we are actively transforming the defense industry of our
country. I am confident that the assistance of NATO member states will remain
unchanged, as is our desire to adhere to the NATO membership course. A
difficult road is ahead, but step by step we are changing approaches to the
functioning of the defense-industrial complex for our army to become one of the
best and most advanced in the world", - First Deputy to the Secretary of the
NSDC of Ukraine noticed.
According to him, Ukraine has made massive progress in the development
of the Ukrainian defense-industrial complex, as evidenced by the new
developments of modern weapons and military equipment and their production for
the needs of the army.
"We must not dwell on what has been achieved, but continue at the same
pace. One of the next steps should be the corporatization phase, which will
attract investment and establish an effective public-private partnership that
works successfully in all NATO member countries. And here we also look forward
to the Alliance's help and experience", - Mr. Hladkovskiy added.
