Philip Dunne praises work of Defence Attachés whose role extends beyond military-to-military relationships

13th March 2018

Speaking in a debate on the Diplomatic Service, Philip Dunne praises the outstanding work that Defence Attachés do in assisting commercial exploitation of defence capability and supporting British companies.

Developing my right hon. Friend’s theme, I too have experience of the outstanding work that defence attachés do in our NATO partner countries, such as the United States, and way beyond, in the Gulf and the far east. Their role extends further than military-to-military relationships; they also play a vital role in assisting commercial exploitation of defence capability and supporting British companies that seek to secure defence and security orders overseas.

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The role of defence attachés in our defence manufacturing capability and our ability to market that important part of our economy is so important. I entirely support what he says.
