Economic diary

Praha, 2023

“Martin Fedor, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ICE, participated in a symposium of the Economic Daily focused on technology and defence strategy of the Czech Republic. The symposium was opened by Czech Defence Minister, Jana Černochová, who stressed the need to adopt and support a triple innovation spiral approach – linking the state, the private sector and academia – to acquire the defence capabilities and technologies needed to maintain a technological edge over our rivals. Martin Fedor stressed the need for investment in R&D and technology within the defence sector, as this is a prerequisite not only for maintaining technological progress but also a condition for future economic growth. In addition, he pointed to the need to find new financial and political instruments within the EU to support the ambitions set out.”
