The aim of the annual NATO-Private Sector Engagement is to bring together Industry leaders and NATO senior-level representatives to discuss Public-Private Sector collaboration and emerging defence opportunities. The NPSE is sponsored by the Office of the Secretary General in partnership with the Samuel Group to allow Industry executives exclusive access to NATO officials and timely information about NATO’s global strategic needs and priorities.
