Abstract:

Italy is home to a large, capable defence sector and a major exporter of defence equipment to this end. However, defence spending on the other hand has been severely affected by the country s economic difficulties post----- crisis. ...However, a number of significant geopolitical events in the last few years have pushed the government to publish its first Defence White Paper since ----. The White Paper outlines Italy s position in light of current geopolitical events, highlights the important role of its armed forces in European and international missions, and provides an insight into the strategic direction the Italian defence sector will be taking in the coming years. After -- years without a clear objective or strategy, the publication of this White Paper is a significant step forward for the modernisation of Italy s armed forces and the country s defence industry. ...In line with the global trend, Italy continues to downsize its armed forces in terms of personnel numbers, whilst increasing the quality of the capabilities available to them as well as increasing training and promoting more specialised and mobile armed forces. This trend will translate into a demand for greater defence procurement over the coming years.

...In the medium term, the effects of the new Defence White Paper will start to be felt, with Italy beginning to increase its defence spending for the first time in years. This will be driven primarily by the country s desire to upgrade its armed forces capabilities in order to ensure that its small contingent is well-equipped and well-trained. ...This will be driven primarily by the country s desire to upgrade its armed forces capabilities in order to ensure that its small contingent is well-equipped and well-trained. As outlined by the White Paper, Italian armed forces will continue to play a major role, alongside European and international allies, in the fight against terrorism, as well as in maintaining stability and bringing peace in the world. Part of this increased investment will also go towards efforts to further develop the domestic industry through more support to SMEs. ...These partnerships, the new White Paper argues, will increase technological knowledge and advances, and ensure that Italy stays ahead of the game in the defence market. New partnerships will also be developed on the international and European level.

...The Italian defence sector may be one of the largest in the world, but the Italian defence market has thus far remained fairly closed to third parties seeking to enter it. The red-tape associated with defence procurement, as well as the levels of corruption, which may be decreasing but are still a distinctive feature, have prevented non-Italian firms from entering the market. ...
