A prerequisite for a strong defence
The overall aim of FXM’s promotion is that it will help to maintain and develop industrial capabilities which are of strategic importance for the Swedish defence. This means that the promotion should be linked to the Swedish military’s long-term supply of equipment. A requirement for support is that the promotion has a traceability to the Swedish defence benefit.
The needs for equipment of the Swedish Armed Forces are not sufficient to maintain a competitive Swedish defence industry. Exports and cooperation are required to create the conditions for defence industrial competence in Sweden. More intensive international exchange helps us to safeguard skills that are adapted to Swedish needs.
One basic prerequisite for FXM’s promotion is also that there is a permit from the Swedish Agency for Non-Proliferation and Export Controls (ISP), which acts as a preliminary approval to export to a country of a given Product.
