The President of the FEINDEF Foundation, Mr. Julián García Vargas, has granted an interview to the newspaper La Razón, where he claims the importance of the national defense industry.

The Defense sector in our country is the one which most invests in R+D+i, developing many technological advances and bringing these developments closer to the civilian sector. This fact has been demonstrated during the toughest pandemic months, when the industrial sector had to reinvent itself for the manufacture of breathing machines.

Spanish Defense industry, in part due to European Funds, not only brings technological advances to the civilian sector, but also provides high quality employment, since it covers several areas with different grades of complexity. The huge potential of the Spanish industry can be seen at the 2nd International Defense and Security Fair (FEINDEF) next November.

The president of the FEINDEF Foundation and former Minister of Health (1986-1991) and Defense (1991-1995), not only praised the importance of the Defense industry, but also our healthcare system. Don Julián applauded the work of the healthcare workers during the pandemic and vindicated their role in the vaccination campaign.
