Mr. Richard Panigu

Issue 45 - August 2013

Defence Turkey: First of all thank you very much for the interview. Could you please inform us UKTI structure, mission and activities in defence and security?

UKTI Defence and security organization exists to support UK Defence and security industry exports. But it does more than acts as a sales front for the industry. It creates relationships between UK government and international governments who are the customers for the UK industry and it provides professional support.  We have 50 officials and other ranks from the army, the air force and the navy. We have all experts in a particular field. These people help customers understand the value and the capabilities of UK equipment.
