DID has covered European Defense Agency (EDA) Chief Executive Nick Whitney’s efforts toward greater European defense industry integration for some time now. In a recent speech at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, the EU official attempted to outline what the EDA is and isn’t, and why he believes its success is certain. He also covered how the EDA’s initiatives in armaments cooperation et. al. related to transatlantic defense trade, the current barriers that are leading Europeans to develop their own weapons, and America’s long-term interests.
