Defence: Exports

Question for Department for International Trade

UIN 54986, tabled on 25 November 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what assessment his Department has made of which countries offer potential markets for UK-based defence small and medium-sized enterprises to export armoured fighting vehicles or associated equipment and services; and what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Defence and the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Climate Change on such markets.

No formal assessment has taken place specifically for armoured fighting vehicles.

However, the Department for International Trade’s Defence and Security Organisation (DSO) is available to support companies seeking to export such goods. Companies can also commission bespoke market research from DSO.
