BOG Signature Webinar Series: China and the Aerospace Industry: U.S. and the European Reactions

October 28 - 28 2020

China looms large on the world stage economically, politically, and militarily. Their policy pronouncements (e.g. the Belt and Road Initiative and the Digital “Silk Road”) place them in competition with the U.S. and European nations on a variety of issues as Chinese competitors enter the aerospace markets traditionally served by U.S. and European firms. However, government responses are not uniform and the remedies to address this competition have been varied.

On Wednesday, October 28, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) will partner with the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) for a webinar with IISS and AIA experts. The panel will discuss the motives, actions, and responses of the various actors and, using extensive data and analysis by IISS researchers, offer some insights into what companies can expect to see in the evolving aerospace marketplace.

This webinar is for AIA members only and is closed to the media.
