The Brazilian Ministry of Defense and the Brazilian Development Bank have signed an agreement to undergo studies to contribute to further support the companies of the local Defence Technological and Industrial Base (DTIB) in the export of their products.
The initiative, signed on 20 February, will see both parties establish over the next 30 days a working plan to define schedules and scopes in order to implement the agreement.
The agreement, which is in line with the National Policy of Defence Industry, will last for two years, with the option for an additional 60 months.
