The National Defense Industrial Strategy: The Way Ahead

January 11, 2024 • 3:30 – 4:30 pm EST

The CSIS Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group (DIIG) will welcome the country's first Assistant Secretary of Defense for Industrial Base Policy (ASD(IBP)), the Honorable Dr. Laura D. Taylor-Kale, for a discussion on the new National Defense Industrial Strategy (NDIS) moderated by DIIG Director Dr. Cynthia R. Cook. The Department of Defense, which has never put forth a strategy specifically for the U.S. defense industry, is launching their plan in early January for strengthening U.S. industrial capacity. This event will discuss the new strategy and what steps will need to be taken to see it to fruition. Dr. Seth G. Jones, Senior Vice President and Director of the International Security Program at CSIS, will offer introductory remarks for this discussion. 

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
