WHAT IS THE BRITISH INDUSTRIAL PARTICIPATION & OFFSET GROUP (BIPOG)?
BIPOG provides offset and countertrade-related advice and assistance to companies.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?
BIPOG is a strategic partnership between the British Government (HMG) and UK companies relating to Offset, Countertrade and Industrial Participation (IP)-type policy issues, as well as on the British Government’s own Defence & Security Industrial Engagement Policy (DSIEP), and general cooperation in support of UK exports and retention of indigenous capability. The BIPOG also seeks to provide advice and support to the Defence Suppliers Forum (DSF) and Defence Growth Partnership (DGP) and their supporting Groups, on Offset-type and IE matters. Its overall objective is: “To establish offset policies and processes for dealing with them, nationally and internationally, that help to strengthen the UK’s own industrial base”. This includes the promotion of greater awareness within UK Industry and other stakeholders of the key issues arising from offset-like activities and policies, including visualisation of the offset process, and explanation of relevant terminology.
