2017 Strategic Review of Defence and National Security
The 2017 Strategic review was officially presented to the President of the Republic on 13 October 2017 by Florence Parly, Minister of the Armed Forces.
The Strategic Review sets the strategic framework for the development of the next Military Programming Act 2019-2025, which will raise our defense effort to 2% of GDP by 2025.
It draws lessons of the unstable and unpredictable strategic context since the 2013 White Paper was released. The Review assesses the interests of France and its defense objectives to identify the skills required for our armies.
