During this period of austerity, international cooperation is more important than ever. Engaging our allies can minimize the stress caused by tightening budgets while ensuring that the warfighter has the best technology and support possible for military operations. We can increase our buying power and find ways to achieve long-term savings by utilizing foreign products and technologies that have already been developed. Supporting appropriate sales and transfers works toward the same goal and helps us keep our relationships strong. International cooperation provides the added benefit of strengthening our defense industrial base by providing reciprocal access to defense markets with our allies and friends.
The advantages of U.S. participation in international cooperative efforts are numerous. I encourage you to find more details on how we go about this work on each webpage in this site. We appreciate your interest and thank you for visiting International Cooperation’s new website!
