The most important conference on international relations and security in central Europe, GLOBSEC 2011, will take place in Bratislava on March 2-4, the SITA newswire reported. Deputy defence ministers from Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Great Britain will discuss how to tackle growing differences between goals and capabilities in defence.

The financial pressure being faced by European countries has led to a search for savings at the national level. The Slovak and Czech defence departments are undergoing strategic reviews which will update their military and political ambitions, as well as the financial framework for defence. On the NATO and EU level, duplication is also being addressed. Guests of the GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum will discuss these topics in the Kempinski Hotel River Park Bratislava.

The event is being organised by the Slovak Atlantic Commission in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic, the NATO Public Diplomacy Division and the International Visegrad Fund.
