Spese militari in Europa
Brussels, 20 November 2006
The EDA has for the first time gathered comprehensive data on European
defence expenditure*, showing that in 2005, the 24 EDA participating
Member States spent € 193 billion on defence.
This figure represents both spending by Ministries of Defence and
defence-related expenditure from other sources (other Ministries,
special budgetary lines). The total of € 193 bn constitutes 1,81% of
their combined € 10,6 trillion economies.
