“Partners not just Suppliers” is the key message from the United Kingdom (UK) as they send a strong delegation to LAAD Defence & Security 2011 exhibition led by Gerald Howarth MP, UK Minister for International Security Strategy, and Baroness Pauline Neville-Jones, Minister for Security and Counter Terrorism and as well as a high level team from UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) headed by Richard Paniguian to highlight the important strategic, defence and trade relationship between the UK and Brazil.  

The UK Government delegation will be accompanied by over 25 UK companies who will be displaying and demonstrating a range of defence and security technologies. 

Defence exports in 2009 were worth £7.2 Billion making the UK the second highest defence exporter.

UK and Brazil firmed in September 2010 a defence co-operation treaty.
