UK Industry Day @ NSPA – a great success!

05 May 2015

Once again this year, NSPA hosted a highly popular Industry Day with representatives from the United Kingdom. The UK delegation was led by H.E. The Honourable Alice Walpole, Her Britannic Majesty's Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Ambassador Walpole provided the Keynote Address and emphasized the growing relationship between NSPA and UK Industry as an extremely positive development.

Organized by NSPA’s Procurement Directorate in coordination with the UK Country Liaison Officer, Mr. Chris Metcalfe and the UK Trade & Investment Belgium-Luxembourg (based at the British Embassies in Brussels and Luxembourg), the one-day event held on Thursday 30 April was attended by more than 40 industry representatives. Throughout the course of the day, the delegation received an update on NSPA’s full range of capabilities in order to maximize future coordination and business enterprise.

NSPA’s Director of Procurement, Mr. Patrick Fesquet, praised the tireless efforts of Ambassador Walpole “… in helping UK Defence industry to achieve a status as an NSPA supplier fully in line with its recognized excellence worldwide: today UK holds a solid position as the second largest supplier of NPSA.”
