"Anyway, I think that some progress was made. Perhaps now, with a structured national security policy and a national defense strategy, the industry itself is able to gain more visibility, the government investment is a more perennial thing. (...) It is important to note that some projects, as the defense minister said, will not stop. They will not stop because they are structuring projects for the domestic industry. I can cite, for example, the design of helicopters,, and also quote the KC-390, Embraer, a large transport aircraft.

"In Brazil, the use of government procurement as an industrial policy instrument is rare. The recent purchase of new Embraer military cargo transportation aircraft by the Air Force could be cited as a good example. When buying a plane that only exists on paper, the government helps pay for the development and subsequent sale by the Company. This is quite different from financing the development of a product without guaranteeing its purchase. "

The Dilma government invests in the protection of Brazil against cyber attacks

The Army Strategic Cyber ​​Defense Project has been engaged since 2009. The following year, all activities of the three Forces in the area came to be coordinated by the Cyber ​​Defense Centre. The first practical action of the Centre's professionals took place in 2012, at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio + 20).

Another important challenge for Brazil came in 2013, when General Carlos Alberto Santos Cruz assumed overall command of the largest and most important UN Peacekeeping mission, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa.

There were 22 thousand men from 20 different countries, with a new task in UN history: for the first time, the "blue helmets" were allowed to attack the insurgents and irregular armies operating in the region.
