Ensuring Industry Competitiveness
The promise of technology development, advanced manufacturing, and production of aerospace and defense products has permeated globally, creating high demand by international partners to build domestic industrial capacity.
To advance U.S. foreign policy and national security interests, both U.S. industry competitiveness and access to international markets is critical, while balancing partners’ and allies’ increasing interests for their own domestic aerospace production.
Look Toward the Future
The demands for a growing list of cutting-edge, emerging technologies are outpacing the current U.S. commercial and defense trade policy and regulatory environments. America’s partners and allies are moving aggressively and the U.S. aerospace and defense industry, with support from our government regulatory partners, must keep pace. More robust consideration of U.S. industry competitiveness is needed by the U.S. government in its policies and strategies to address the increasingly competitive international landscape.
