According to the agreement, the companies agree to undertake to cooperate both in the marketing and sales of the L-159 and in further development of the L-159. In addition, the agreement aims to further develop manufacturing capabilities of Aero through identifying manufacturing work packages from Saab on a range of projects which will be placed at Aero.
