The UK’s expertise in security and resilience is widely seen as world-class, and a key asset to bring to bear in its “Global Britain” agenda. Assisting partner nations in building their security and resilience capacity can be a vital tool for the UK to promote its influence, expand its trade, and protect its own security and that of its allies.
