Czech Republic Defence & Security Report 2015 - New Report Available
New Defense research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research
[USPRwire, Mon Dec 08 2014] The Czech Republic is to continue to benefit from its membership in both NATO and the EU, both in terms of the capability of its armed forces , and the breadth and capacity of its defence industry. Budgetary constraints are to keep troop levels and budgetary allocation stagnant for the foreseeable future. This in turn will result in little growth in the domestic arms market, although international sales of training aircraft continue to perform well. As part of the EU and NATO, and with a small international presence, the Czech Republic has few threats to its security, although the rise of the far-right is an issue we continue to monitor.

We do not expect defence spending in the Czech Republic to increase significantly over the remainder of the forecast period, up to and including 2018, by which time we expect annual defence spending to have reached USD2.6bn.
