The Nordic nations gathered in NATO
Implications for armed forces and defence planning
Opportunities for co-operation
Future investments

NDIS typically attracts around 300 attendees and will be a great opportunity to meet and network with decision-makers from the Nordic governments, armed forces, industry, and stakeholders.
