SEMINAR: OFFSETTING THE COSTS OF SOUTH AFRICA`S STRATEGIC DEFENCE PACKAGE

Tuesday, 22 July 2003

 
Presented by the
ARMS MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME

Industrial participation programmes are often used in the defence trade to offset the cost of unusually large purchases by requiring a percentage of the contract value to be invested in some way in the economy of the purchasing country. As part of South Africa’s arms procurement process, the strategic defence package, the government secured industrial participation agreements that amount to more than 400 per cent of the value of the weapons being purchased. This paper explores this dimension of the defence package and reviews the benefits that could come to South Africa if the industrial participation agreements are fully realised.
 
The seminar is open to all, please RSVP using the contact details below.
