Arlington, Va. — As the Administration and Congress develop an economic stimulus package to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning released the following statement:
“Public health and safety are essential, but so are tools to help our employees and businesses bridge the gap created by COVID-19. It is essential for American leaders from both parties and at every level to put politics aside and take immediate action to help our country move forward. Time is of the essence, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.”
