Forsvarsminister Ine Eriksen Søreide har bidratt med et forord i publikasjonen:

"Small is powerful

The Norwegian defence industry had a significant export of 570 million EUR/ 780 million USD in 2012. By any standards this is impressive, but given the trend of reduced defence spending in Europe and the US it is an outstanding achievement.

Norwegian defence and security companies are small, innovative and high tech. Even Norway's largest players in the sector have kept their creative and entrepreneurial spirit by applying decentralized organizational principles.

Naturally, our most important export markets are our allies in NATO and our neighbours in the Nordics. The US represents both an important partner and a challenging market. The battle for market share in the US is fierce and will stay that way. Nevertheless, we remain committed to gaining better market access to the US market.

Winning contracts within the "best value" framework of the F-35 acquisition is of significant importance to the Norwegian defence industry. F-35 co-operation still holds a large potential for Norwegian suppliers, even though competition is increasing.

In the long run, growth markets in Asia and South America will have to grow to secure our future success as our traditional markets are shrinking. Hence, we will increasingly emphasize these markets overseas.

The EU Defence and Security Procurement Directive is implemented in Norway as of 1 January 2014. This is managed through the Norwegian Regulation on Defence and Security Procurement (FOSA).

The new regulations will provide both challenges and opportunities. The Norwegian government will continue with industrial co-operation and offset agreements in areas in which the new legislation allows for such market activities.

Success in the international defence and security market is not easily achieved. The market is far from transparent and political considerations are more often than not part of the decision making processes. Norway is a high cost country within low tech, but not particularly within high tech. This is an attractive market position with an interesting potential.

On behalf of the Norwegian government, I promise that we will do our utmost to open doors for the Norwegian defence and security industry abroad. It is an industry important both for our Armed Forces but also an industry that contributes significantly to our society at large by employing close to 5,000 people all over the country.

I am confident that the industry will continue to be proactive, adaptive to change and ready to turn opportunities into results."
