As noted in the report on the Modernising Defence Programme earlier this year, we are continuing to invest in and grow our Global network of Defence personnel. Since the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review we have strengthened existing Defence Sections, established 12 new Defence Sections and created two new deployed regional British Defence Staffs. We also have measures in place to improve the selection and training of Defence Advisors, Attaches and their support staff.
