The U.S. Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration (ITA) will host a National Aerospace Foreign Direct Investment Exposition (FDI Expo), October 26-28, in Los Angeles. This is right before the 2015 MARPA Conference in Las Vegas (and it is just a short flight from LAX to LAS).
This ITA event is designed to highlight opportunities in the U.S. aerospace manufacturing sector for foreign investment. Foreign investors will attend in order to learn about aerospace manufacturing investment opportunities.
The FDI Expo will be focused on offering resources to prospective investors, in an effort to entice them to establish or expand their presence in the United States. The event will feature one-on-one meetings with state and local economic development organizations. MARPA members seeking investment capital may wish to attend the ITA event before they join us at the MARPA Conference, in order to network with prospective investors.
I think many foreign investors would be surprised at just how good an investment the PMA industry can be.
