Under the leadership of ESG Commander, Vice Admiral Marcelo Menezes Cardoso, the opening ceremony emphasized the relevance of collaborations between ESG and Industry Federations. These partnerships are crucial to fostering knowledge about national development, with special emphasis on the Defense Industry.

With a hybrid educational model, CGERD-MG aims to comprehensively address the concepts of National Defense and defense resource management processes. The distance phase, which preceded the in-person meeting, prepared the ground for in-depth discussions and sharing of experiences that will now be intensified with in-person classes. The diversity of this year’s class, made up of 19 civilians from various companies and public agencies, as well as a senior officer from the Armed Forces and three state military personnel, promises to enrich the course with different perspectives and experiences.

Impact and Future Perspectives

The holding of CGERD-MG in the capital of Minas Gerais not only reinforces the importance of Minas Gerais as a strategic center for the development of national defense, but also underlines ESG’s vision of expanding and disseminating knowledge in defense management throughout the country. The initiative is a clear indication of the growing need for qualified professionals who can contribute both to the modernization of the Armed Forces and to the evolution of the Brazilian Defense Industry, vital aspects for sovereignty and national security.
