Paris, June 17 - The chief executive of the Italian
defence and transport conglomerate Finmeccanica on Monday called
for new policies and vision on Italian and European levels to
develop the domestic and continental defense industry.
"We have confidence that our government is well aware and
is working hard for a well-defined, serious Italian position" at
December's summit of European Union defence ministers, said
Alessandro Pansa at the Paris Air Show.
Pansa also laid out a checklist of policies he feels the
Italian government needs to define.
"What will be our government's defense policy? The position
of our government regarding industrial relations? And the
position of the cabinet toward other major producers?" Pansa
queried, adding, "a fourth thing - to what extent will we see
European governments wanting to pool resources for defense
technologies"?
High on his own list, Pansa pointed to developing a
European programme for the development of unmanned drones.
Pansa said Finmeccanica's aerospace subsidiary Alenia "will
do everything possible to develop" a European drone-development
programme "but we cannot remain outside an important business
for aerospace in the future".
Pansa was making reference to Finmeccanica's joint effort
with pan-European aeronautical company EADS - registered in the
Netherlands - and French aerospace company Dassault, who have
asked their respective governments to launch a joint programme
for drone development.
