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.
