Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning
Arlington, Va. — As the Administration and Congress work together to develop the Fiscal Year 2021 budget, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) urges critical investments in the civil aviation, defense, and space technologies that will ensure American security and global competitiveness now and in the future.
“Sufficient and stable funding is the backbone of manufacturing and innovation, and our competitors are making more investments than ever before,” said AIA President and CEO Eric Fanning. “Global threats must help guide our capabilities, and U.S. investment should match. To maintain American leadership, we need a predictable and timely budget process—one that provides the resources we need to strengthen our economic success and national security.”
