Sener takes part in the meeting of the President of the Government and the Minister of Defence with the Spanish Industry


The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, and the Spanish Minister of Defence, Margarita Robles, held a meeting yesterday with the main representatives of the Spanish defence industry to thank them for their commitment in the current complex geopolitical context and to urge them to reinforce the positioning of the Spanish industry as a key player in the recently announced European Defence Industrial Strategy. The meeting was attended by the President of Sener, Andrés Sendagorta, along with counterparts from other companies in Spain.

During the meeting, in addition to highlighting the role of Spanish industry in increasing the level of strategic autonomy of the armed forces, topics such as the relevance of R&D efforts and talent in leading large European defence programs were addressed. In this sense, Sener participates in key programs for the security of the continent such as HYDEF, COMMANDS or SWAT-SHOAL, as well as being part of the SATNUS consortium, which leads the activities of the technological pillar of remote operators of the future European combat system NGWS.

The Spanish President also highlighted the value of the Spanish defence industry, the fourth largest exporter in Europe and eighth in the world, with more than 400 companies that employ more than 36,000 people directly, providing high-tech solutions.
