NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) proposed to include Ukrainian defense industry enterprises in its list of defense products manufacturers, Ukroboronprom reports.

"Ukraine has become the first among NATO’s Eastern European partners to be offered this opportunity, which is the evidence of NATO’s recognition of the potential of our country’s defense industry and the deepening of confidence in it," the press service says referring to the assessment by Ukraine's mission to NATO.

Also, Ukraine’s mission to NATO noted that the work has already started on preparing relevant additions to the legal framework for the regulation of Ukraine's cooperation with NSPA.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the State Target Program for Reforming and Developing the Defense Industrial Complex until 2021, which deals with all aspects of the DIC management, ranging from the regulatory framework to the export potential.

The plans for the next year include the implementation of several pilot projects that allow assessing the capability of the Ukrainian defense industry to adapt to international norms and procedures, in particular, to NATO standards.

UNIAN memo. Ukraine's state-run Ukroboronprom Concern was established in 2010 to ensure the effective operation and management of state-run economic entities involved in the development, manufacture, sale, repair, modernization and disposal of weapons, military and special equipment, and ammunition. The companies also participate in military and technical cooperation. The concern comprises over a hundred enterprises of Ukraine's military industrial complex.
