Washington, D.C. – Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning today commemorated the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) 75th Summit by calling for a deeper cooperation and interoperability between the allied nations’ industrial bases. AIA’s new white paper outlines key recommendations to modernize the NATO Alliance and encourage transatlantic industrial base coordination.

“NATO has been a fundamental part of upholding a rules-based order for the last 75 years. Our collective and unwavering strength serves as the bulwark against adversaries, and this week is an opportunity to bolster our alliance through joint defense base cooperation,” Fanning said. “As the global security environment grows increasingly complex, the rising demand for defense capabilities is putting pressure on the transatlantic industrial base. AIA encourages NATO nations to leverage decades of existing cooperation to promote targeted and coordinated industrial base investments that will safeguard our shared values. 

“As we celebrate the 75-year legacy this week at the NATO summit, AIA congratulates NATO Allies on their dedication to an enduring and united partnership and looks forward to the next era of the Alliance,” Fanning continued.
