Wednesday 13 June 2018 (14h-15h): International Industrial cooperation in a new geopolitical context

ECCO is proud to organise the first industrial cooperation conference for beginners, free for every Eurosatory visitor.

Industrial participation is a growing phenomenon in international trade. As a way to develop national industry, it consists in forcing foreign companies to invest in the buyer’s country in order to be allowed to sign a public procurement contract. About 130 countries require offsets when a foreign company wins a public tender. In 2016, more than 500 billion dollars in offsets were promised. In 2014, the top 7 offset markets, which include Saudi Arabia, UAE and India, are expected to generate over 60 % of obligations. These figures only concern aeronautics and defence but this phenomenon has widely spread to all sectors, including energy, transport, telecommunications and health. With this conference, ECCO would like to show you how these mechanisms can and will help you win public tenders abroad.
