The Policy Insights Forum, a member of the Samuel Group of Companies, in partnership with NATO, the Government of Canada, the Government of Belgium and the Canadian Commercial Corporation, is pleased to bring Canadian business leaders to NATO Headquarters for its second annual NATO-Private Sector Engagement (NPSE) event from February 21-24 2023.

This year's visit aims to connect businesses and commercial enterprises to the recent announcement by NATO and the Federal Government that Halifax, Canada, is to host the North American regional office of the NATO - Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA).

The list of participating companies demonstrates the growing interest and need for programs like the NPSE. Some of North America’s most influential Senior Executives will attend from prominent organizations such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Bell Canada, Telesat, Calian Group, Saab, BMT Group, Raytheon ELCAN as well as specialized companies, including GeoSpectrum Technologies, Crypto4A Technologies, Akimbo Technologies, Lastwall Networks, Palitronica and others.

Chef de Mission, Vice Admiral (Ret'd) Mark Norman prefaces the event by stating,

"We are at a historic time with the accession of Sweden and Finland into NATO. I am honoured to once again lead a group of industry leaders on this visit to Brussels to explore their contributions to industrial cooperation and dual-use technologies to strengthen the Alliance.”
“Through the NPSE visit program, our goal is to introduce innovative defence and dual-use companies working in the Canadian, North American and European markets to NATO opportunities and institutions.”

-states Goran Samuel Pesic, PIF Chair and NPSE Organizer.
