Arlington, Va. (Oct. 12, 2022) – Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning today released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s National Security Strategy:
“The new National Security Strategy provides a roadmap to propel American leadership and defend our values in a new era of strategic competition, especially in the Indo-Pacific. The aerospace and defense industry underpins it all — from providing our military with the most cutting-edge equipment, to advancing sustainable technology that will keep our air cleaner, to supporting global trade and cooperation that will further tilt the balance of power in our favor.
“The strategy correctly recognizes that the American defense industrial base and its workforce are strategic assets that no other country has to offer. We welcome the administration’s commitment to investing in our supply chain and the 2.1 million employees who support our industry to harness American innovation and strengthen national security.
“The Aerospace Industries Association is ready to meet this moment, ensuring the aerospace and defense industry continues to fulfill its vital role as one of America’s enduring advantages.”
