Press Briefing: The State of the U.S. Defense Industrial Base

November 27, 2018 • 8:00 – 9:00 am EST
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will host a press briefing ahead of the Global Strategy Forum and the Reagan National Defense Forum on the state of the Defense Industrial Base.
Among the issues to be addressed:
  • The defense contracting rebound with deeper dives into platform portfolios (e.g. Ships and Submarines, Aircraft and Drones).
  • What the data shows on innovation policy (including OTAs) and services.
  • The EO 13806 Defense-Industrial Base Assessment and an exclusive preview of relevant CSIS findings on new entrants and industrial consolidation.

A transcript will be available after the press briefing concludes.
