Supporting America’s Partners and Allies
America’s aerospace and defense industry is a vital part of U.S. national security and foreign policy. To lead on the global stage on competitive 21st century challenges, aerospace, defense, and security trade must remain an essential part of American foreign and national security policy, both for the defense of the United States, and to contribute to the national security of America’s partners and allies.
Look Toward the Future
Modern global challenges necessitate an agile, predictable defense trade and security cooperation system that supports sharing of global security responsibilities by supplying full-spectrum capabilities to our allies and partners. U.S. national security and defense policy emphasizes supporting U.S. partners and allies in support of their own national security objectives to meet global security challenges and sustain a peaceful and cooperative international order.
Take Action Now
With industry playing a critical, supportive role, this is an important time for predictable, efficient, and transparent policy and regulatory actions to achieve the goals of the National Defense Strategy and National Security Strategy. As global events generate demand for U.S. leadership and strengthened international partnerships, clear policy direction, modernized process management, and close collaboration with industry will ensure that the U.S. is in full partnership with its partners and allies.
