South Korea, for the second time

This Asian country has been appointed the MSPO Lead Nation role at the International Defense Industry Exhibition for the second time.

The Polish government has resolved to purchase an extensive amount of military equipment from Korea. The agreements were also signed at last 2022's defense industry trade show in Kielce.
