The association representing local arms producers has criticized the Czech Ministry of Defence for insufficient support for their companies. They say the proportion of ministry arms and equipment orders going to local companies is around a third of the total of spending. That compares with a total of around 90 percent in neighbouring Poland. The local producers say that they can hardly hope to land export orders if they do not first win orders from the ministry.
