ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Aerospace Industries Association offers its congratulations to President-elect Donald J. Trump and the 115th Congress. We look forward to the opportunity to work with the President-elect, the new Congress, their staffs and political appointees as they take office and address the many critical issues we face in the days ahead.
As the voice of American aerospace and defense, AIA led the way to inform the campaigns of our positions on issues essential to continued economic growth and progress. We met with Mr. Trump in June and informal advisers to Hillary for America in August to present our campaign position papers and explain in more detail the steps necessary to boost our economy, support high-technology jobs and ensure our national security.
As we move past the election into a transition period and the start of a unified Administration and Congress, we will continue to advocate strongly to our elected leaders to:
- Repeal the budget caps that are harming national security
- Expand trade and job opportunities by making the Export Import Bank whole
- Enhance security cooperation with allied and partner nations
- Develop smart regulations that increase industry's ability to compete in the global marketplace
- Bolster our nation's investments in important civil aviation infrastructure, space exploration and research programs
The aerospace and defense industry is an important engine for the U.S. economy and looks forward to working together on the safety and security of our nation.
