AIA Statement on the State of the Union Address

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning

Arlington, Va. — As we look to the President to lay out a roadmap of the next year, we know that the aerospace and defense industry will continue to play a vital role in our country’s success.

“For over 100 years, the strength of the U.S. economy and national security has been closely tied to that of the aerospace and defense industry,” said Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning. “We look to the State of the Union to chart a path forward that bolsters our shared capabilities and highlights a number of ways industry, government, and academia can work together—from strengthening the industrial base to investing in the workforce of tomorrow.”
