The Future of the Defense Industrial Base

April 30 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am

Challenges with supply chains during and after COVID, production challenges supporting Ukraine’s defense against the Russian invasion, and deterring Chinese aggression have exposed significant challenges in the capacity of the defense industrial base to meet current and potential future operational contingencies.

Significant efforts are underway to address these challenges and DoD recently released the first-ever National Defense Industrial Strategy to guide the overall approach to strengthen the defense industrial base. What does the strategy mean for government and industry?

Join us for a discussion on this critical question with the principal author of the strategy, an influential House member with deep industrial base experience, and a CEO of a major defense contractor. The panelists will

  • Outline the major thrusts of the strategy
  • Discuss what they hope to see in the upcoming implementation plan, and
  • Outline proposed legislative and policy initiatives to support the strengthening of the industrial base, creating effective incentive structures to maintain a healthy industrial base

In-Person Perks

  • Coffee and breakfast rolls will be provided at registration
  • The post-discussion Networking Session will have coffee and energy bars

We hope to see you there!
