The Managing Director of AED Cluster Portugal, Rui Santos, confirms: “this is a major event and will have a larger impact this year. After a break of four years, FIA has returned to an “in person event”, uniting partners throughout the world and allowing an increase & business recovery. This is a strategic opportunity to witness the latest developments of the sector, strengthen links with various international players and show that Portugal is committed to remain at the forefront of the industries innovations”.

The Board President of idD Portugal Defence, Catarina Nunes, states: “from among more than 400 entities that make up the Defence Technological and Industrial Base, the revenue generated from those within the aerospace sector reached a value of 1.44 billion euros, representing almost a third of the total revenue for National defence, in 2020. It is, therefore, a dynamic sector, with a potential to increase, having already registered interest from various multinationals of the sector to invest in Portugal”.

During FIA, idD Portugal Defence will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the British association ADS Group promoting cooperation and aiming to create business opportunities between the entities that are part of the defence industry of both countries.
