    There is therefore a need for a high level meeting thatbrings together senior military leadership, projectdecision makers and technical experts alongside thevehicle manufacturers and cutting edge industry solutionproviders to collaborate on future endeavours that willenhance the security and stability of Eastern Europe and its neighbouring countries.

    I believe Future Armoured Vehicles is the perfectenvironment for this collaboration, hence lending mysupport behind it as chairman.
