Alabama team begins Farnborough meetings targeting growth

FARNBOROUGH, England – Alabama’s business development team at the Farnborough International Airshow began holding its initial rounds of appointments this morning with aerospace companies.

Over the next two days, Governor Kay Ivey and Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce, and his team will engage in at least 16 meetings at Farnborough with companies. The team’s overall objective is to position the state for new investment and job creation in the sector.

“Today is the first official day of the Farnborough Airshow, but leading up to today, we’ve already had significant discussions with two different companies about projects,” Secretary Canfield said. 

“That’s exactly why we’re here, to build relationships and make contacts. Alabama has springboarded into a lot of projects by being here at Farnborough and making contact with great companies.”
