The UK Defence Solution Centre’s Chairman has recently returned from a successful visit to Tokyo, Japan (8-15 November, 2017).
Our Chairman was invited to speak at a RUSI Round-table on Monday 13 November. This event embraced two sessions: the threat from North Korea; and the prospects for tri-national collaboration between Japan, the UK and the USA on a potential future fighter programme. The Round-table was attended by numerous industry and governmental participants and there were a variety of guest speakers from international companies.
Our Chairman was also fortunate to have positive meetings with a number of senior level representatives from Japanese industry, government and other institutions.
The next step for engagement is to prepare a workshop for Japanese and British industry at Farnborough Air Show, 2018. This workshop should also provide an opportunity for further engagement opportunities throughout the coming year.
We look forward to deepening the engagement with our Japanese partners as we move into 2018.
