Arlington, Va. – The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) today released its international legislative affairs prior to the committee markups for the Fiscal Year 2025 National Defense Authorization Act and other critical authorizing legislation slated to start this week. 

AIA has championed legislative provisions that would promote resiliency for the defense industrial base, advance cooperation with allied and partner nations, and enable our industry to support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States.

“The U.S. defense industrial base has worked with foreign partners and allies for decades to build a resilient global supply chain that makes our country stronger. Now, we need Congress to take steps to remove outdated barriers to trade with our allies and partners that accelerates our industry’s ability to support global security,” AIA Vice President of International Affairs Dak Hardwick said. “AIA’s priorities call on Congress to adapt to a rapidly changing world, allowing us to out-innovate, out-create, and out-deliver our adversaries. We look forward to working with Congress to implement these necessary changes.”
