Conference Documentation: Defence Logistics Eastern Europe

Eastern European Nations are seeking to build up and modernise their military forces in light of several security threats far and near to their borders as well as the demands put on them by NATO membership. They need to become adaptable and flexible, ready to deploy anywhere to defend NATO interests or keep the peace. To do that they require an effective logistics capability able to keep up and support with the combat units.

Defence Logistics Eastern Europe 2016 will be held in Prague from the 7th-8th March and aims to bring together members of logistics commands from across the region to discuss the challenges of modernising their logistics forces through training, international cooperation and procurement. While at the same time going through extensive budget reforms. SMi strives to provide effective learning experiences for all delegates through expert speakers, carefully chosen through extensive research.
