China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation (CPMIEC, Chinese: 中国精密机械进出口总公司) is a Chinese defense contractor that manufacturers missile and air defense systems.
In a notable announcement in September 2013, Turkey, a member of the NATO alliance, declared its intention to acquire the HQ-9 missile defense system from the company, in a deal valued at 3.44 billion US dollar. CPMIEC was selected against three other competitors. The Aster 30 missile with SAMP/T launcher from the Italo-French consortium Eurosam came second, the Patriot missile defense system offered by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon came third and the S-300 system from the Russian Rosoboronexport fourth in the competition. Following critics from NATO, Turkey agreed to reconsider the deal until December 2014. On February 20, 2015, Turkey's defense minister Ismet Yilmaz announced that the Turkish military would go ahead with the $3.5 billion purchase of the HQ-9 air defense system.
