AIA, ADS Push Governments to Keep Aerospace Spending High



Industry leaders from the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD) and the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) exchanged views June 16 on the current economic situation and the impact of government policy responses on the aerospace and defence industry.

Following the exchange, ASD and AIA issued the following statement:

If our respective governments continue to foster a climate in which the aerospace and defence sector can thrive, our member companies will continue to deliver products and services that contribute to global safety, security and economic prosperity. As governments across the globe forge closer partnerships with industry, our industry remains a powerful and reliable source of high tech manufacturing and engineering employment, advanced technological innovation, environmental stewardship, and export revenue. As leaders in the global marketplace, we are weathering the current economic difficulties and will continue to play a major role in the recovery.
