FSEC at EMPA congress

28-10-2011 Executive Director Mr. Pavel Zelenka took part at the EMPA congress hosted by the Swiss Army in Lucerne on 26th October 2011. The EMPA (European Military Press Association) provides a forum for military journalists from all over Europe to share and exchange ideas, information on relevant issues. The EMPA has more than 100 members from 22 member countries.



The president was invited to visit the „Future Soldier 2010” last October in Prague, an exhibition & conference for all the needs of the soldier on the ground. Besides exhibiting networking and fostering contacts as well as public relations is the main goal of this event. So the goals of the „Future Soldier” and the EMPA are pretty the same.
