--> Welcome Charles W. Wessner National Research Council Dr. Wessner opened the symposium by welcoming the participants and thanking them for their attendance. Noting that the meeting is intended to allow participants to explore important issues for the defense industrial base, long-term national security, and high-wage employment, he encouraged participants to ask questions at the end of the presentations. The symposium is designed to bring together a small, knowledgeable group to encourage a frank and open exchange. Although he emphasized the expectation that the courtesy that characterizes Academy deliberations would be respected, Dr. Wessner urged the participants to express their views freely on issues of importance to them. Garnering these views, having a frank and open discussion, and eliciting relevant questions are the goals of the symposium. Dr. Wessner then introduced Ambassador Alan Wm. Wolff, the symposium chair.
