National Defense Industrial Association supports review of defense industrial base

The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) praised President Donald Trumps's intent to issue an executive order for a complete review of the defense industrial base.

The NDIA said in a release it feels that the review is overdue and that there are actionable steps to take to improve this area of the nation's security.

"The United States must concentrate on its ability to stay ahead," Hawk Carlisle, president and CEO of the defense nonprofit organization, said in the release. "We need to ensure that we maintain core capabilities and advance our manufacturing capacity and supply chain. We have to build better and faster, and we have to ensure that we have the workforce available to make that happen."  

Carlisle said the NDIA was prepared to collaborate with the Defense Department in order to bring about the review and to reach the goals set.

"Our 80,000-plus members are the best and brightest, and the reason NDIA remains a leader in defense and national security organizations," Carlisle said. "We are ready to get this examination started."
