The work carried out by the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces is a continuous commitment to guarantee and preserve peace within the framework of the UN, NATO and the EU.
One of the goals set by the Ministry of Defense for 2021 is to make progress in the modernization of the Armed Forces. In order to achieve this goal, defense industry programs such as the VCR 8x8, completely manufactured in Spain, the S-80 submarine and the FCAS have been launched.
Furthermore, in favor of the defense industry within the framework of territorial cohesion, Cordoba has been chosen as the location for the Army's logistics base. This will be a great boost for the region, both economically and socially.
The battle to combat the Covid-19 pandemic has also been an important focus to be taken into account. Within the framework of Baluarte Operation, the Ministry of Defense has supported the regional communities with more than 2,000 military trackers.
For the rest of the year, it is estimated that a maximum of 2,900 personnel will be fulfilling these commitments in the different performance scenarios. To this end, a process has been initiated to improve their salaries and quality of life.
