The submarine purchase: for what purpose?

On April 15th, 2010, IDL organized a meeting on the subject of the submarine acquisition by the Portuguese government, a topic that has been of great importance to the Armed Forces and to national politics, although for different reasons.

The meeting was moderated by Commander Manuel Pinto Machado, president of IAC, and the speakers were Admiral Vidal Abreu (former CEMA/ Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces), Vice-Admiral Reis Rodrigues (former Vice-CEMA) and Commander of the STANAVFORLANT.

The debate was animated, and special mention is given to the participation by Admiral Nuno Matias (former CEMA), Rear Admiral José Luís Cardoso, and Mrs. Maria Luís Figueiredo, expert on politics of cooperation.
