What is the DGP?


The Defence Growth Partnership (DGP) is a partnership between Government and the Defence Industry. It is jointly led by the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Defence Industry, with the support of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) as the UK customer. The DGP also works closely with the UK’s Department of International Trade – Defence and Security Organisation (UKTI DSO) as well as academia and R&D. You can find the full details at Who is involved in the DGP.

The DGP is working to secure a truly competitive, sustainable and globally successful UK Defence sector that provides affordable leading-edge capability and through-life support for our Armed Forces and international customers, as well as bringing wider economic benefits to the UK. It does this through various activities which are explored in Our Plan.
