In March 2021 ,the UK Integrated Review released its plans to further strengthen security and defence at home and overseas. UK will continue to work with allies and partners in defeating imposed threats and challenges to security in the physical world and online.
The document revealed a significant restructuring plan, with up to 10,000 positions to be cut in the armed forces. This will help the refinement and 'specialisation' of existing units, the formation of new units, and adaptation to newer, more modern technologies.
The report also promises to support others in the Eastern European neighbourhood and beyond in building their resilience to state threats. Taking place in Warsaw, GSOF Symposium Europe 2021 is a great opportunity for key officials across millitary, government and commercial stakeholders to come together to explore topical developments and advance Special Operations Forces capabilities.
