Coalition for Defence & Security Greece

Together for a safer and more secure Europe.

A public-private initiative from the Netherlands

To protect what we value, investing in defence and security is key. Both Greece and the Netherlands can be proud of a long maritime history and our modern and up-to-date defence industries. We propose a mutually beneficial partnership, where we help each other fulfil our needs and fill in our knowledge gaps.

By cooperating in the field of defence and security, we create a strong and equal partnership to further innovation and R&D. The Netherlands is a trusted and reliable partner for Greece. We offer high-tech defence systems, knowledge and skills that can help Greek defence personnel upgrade their equipment and take their work to the next level.
