CANADA SENDS STRONG DELEGATION TO FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW
Canada's Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, will lead the country's delegation at the Farnborough International Airshow in the UK this week to underscoe the importance of Canada's aerospace industry.
In 2017, the industry contributed close to CUSD 25 billion to the Canadian economy and employed almost 190,000 Canadians in well-paying middle-class jobs.
At the airshow, Minister Bains, together with the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, and David Lametti, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, will meet with a number of key Canadian and international aerospace stakeholders from July 15 to 17, 2018.
Minister Bains will officially inaugurate the Canadian Pavilion at the airshow on Monday, July 16, where he will highlight Canada's global excellence in the production of civil airplanes, flight simulators, helicopters and engines to potential buyers and position Canadian firms for supply chain integration and investment.
Also on Monday, July 16, ministers Bains, Garneau and Qualtrough will participate in a fireside chat hosted by the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada, during which they will promote Canada as a premier destination for global aerospace investment.
"Transportation plays a major role in Canada's economy. Events such as the Farnborough International Airshow give us a great opportunity to stand beside our Canadian companies and meet with key stakeholders in the aerospace industry, says Garneau.
Canada's aerospace industry is the number one manufacturing R&D player, with an annual investment of CUSD 1.7 billion.
In 2017, close to 75% of aerospace manufactured products were exported.
Farnborough International Airshow is a global showcase for the aerospace industry that attracts over 1,500 exhibitors from more than 52 countries.
