The Portuguese Recovery and Resilience Plan was in public consultation up to the 1st of March. AED made its contribution to mitigate the economic impact in the Aeronautics, Space and Defence sectors.
Within the scope of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), AED Cluster Portugal presented a set of programs for the inclusion of the ASD industries in this strategic document, which indicates the fundamental structural reforms to ensure the exit from the pandemic crisis and guarantee a resilient future for Portugal.
