A&D companies needs to be considered
The efficient use of resources by companies in the A&D industry is critically important, given the highly competitive and global nature of this industry, as well as the industry’s vital national security mission. To promote and enhance efficiency in this industry, privatization of state-owned or controlled A&D companies needs to be considered in order to improve productivity, reduce costs, raise the operational efficiency of facilities and investments, create new business and production facilities, streamline management, strengthen compliance controls, and enhance national security interests.
