The Defence and Security Industry Association of the Czech Republic (DSIA) brings together companies engaged in research, development, production, trade, and marketing services of military, security and dual-use equipment, material, and infrastructure in the Czech Republic. The cluster was founded in 1997 as a non-governmental, independent, apolitical, non-profit organisation. Since its foundation, it is a respected partner of the Government of the Czech Republic, the Ministries of Industry and Trade, Defence, Interior, and Foreign Affairs. DSIA promotes the business and commercial interests of its members in dialogue with the Parliament, ministries, other government authorities, and foreign partners. It has become an important participant in legislative processes.
Its discussions at the “round tables” with representatives of the state administration or the Parliament allow raising questions related to the defence and security industry at the most competent level. The DSIA is a primary contact point for similar foreign institutions. DSIA helps foreign companies to find suitable partners and vice-versa it helps the Czech firms to contact appropriate companies abroad.
