April 10, 2018 | 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM
The Westin Washington National Harbor 171 Waterfront St. Oxon Hill, MD 20745

The Navy-Marine Corps team is under tremendous pressure to sustain its peace-time presence missions; increase operational readiness; add more ships and develop technologies and concepts of operation to enhance conventional deterrence in the face of increasingly sophisticated threats; and invest in strategic nuclear force upgrades.

Even with an increase in the budget planned for fiscal 2018 and 2019 it still means some tough tradeoffs in the near and far-term.

Join Bloomberg Government analysts for a breakfast discussion on Navy-Marine Corps budget priorities and major contracting opportunities in fiscal 2019 and beyond.
