Domestic and foreign experts discussed the overall situation in the Croatian defense industry, but also the role of artificial intelligence in the development of new defense systems, as well as the potential benefits and shortcomings of the introduction of the 5G network.

Defense Minister Damir Krstičević also announced that the American Armed Forces had agreed to donate sixty Bradley Fighting Vehicles to Croatia, as well as provide additional military funding.

"These vehicles will be donated by the American government. This is a continuation and a confirmation of our partnership with the government of the United States. Afterwards, a further investment of 25 million US dollars into those vehicles will be made by the United States for their complete modernization," said the minister.

The Croatian defense industry is strong, and Croatian-made products are in demand around the world, said Krstičević, which means that Croatia has to remain on the cutting edge and continue to explore new technologies.
