The Government is waiting for the EU-UK future trading relationship negotiations to conclude before setting out plans regarding the facilitation of defence and security contracts with EU member states or companies indigenous to those jurisdictions.

Meanwhile, defence and security exporters will continue to be supported by UK Defence and Security Exports within DIT, as they are now.
