French Industry Day

On 11 December 2012, a French delegation led by UBIFRANCE (the French government agency providing export support to French small and medium-sized enterprises) visited NSPA.

The delegation was welcomed by Mr. Fesquet, the NSPA Director of Procurement and the meeting began with a General Orientation briefing followed by a presentation covering the various aspects of the Agency’s procurement Policy. After a short break and an initial informal exchange of ideas between the NSPA representatives, Ubifrance and the French industrial partners, the visitors presented their capabilities, covering a wide range of systems in areas such as detection, communication, aviation, the automotive industry, support to operations, environmental surveillance, security, ammunition, specialised material handling, building of infrastructures, pharmaceuticals, geolocation and in particular weather alerts.

All attendees were clearly satisfied with the meeting, which has been productive and beneficial.
