Defence Turkey: Mr. Joe Garland first of all thanks for this interview. As the Vice President and International Business Development of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (MFC) what is the most challenging task you face with in your assignment?

LM has spent years both developing trust with emerging partnerships and working to maintain that trust with existing partners. This mutual trust and respect is exemplified here in Turkey with the establishment years ago of Turkish Aerospace Industries, and it’s long time exceptional performance. As our customers face new and evolving threats and challenges, we as a corporation must evolve our relationship with them, to support their needs while at the same time being the steady partner they have grown to expect from Lockheed Martin.
