Selling military equipment overseas often involves dealing with foreign companies or individuals providing local knowledge and marketing intelligence. Many advertise their services as in-country agents, representatives or consultants claiming to provide exclusive access to a range of government departments and military institutions and officials for a fee. In such circumstances it is essential that the right representative, with the right expertise and networks is appointed.
