PARIS — Governor Kay Ivey this morning urged a team of Alabama economic development specialists in France to work diligently at the 2019 Paris Air Show to position the state’s aerospace industry for more growth and job creation.
Governor Ivey spoke to the economic developers at a breakfast that serves as the kick off for the team’s air show mission, which officially begins on Monday when the aerospace industry’s premier event this year gets under way at Le Bourget airport.
“Our job here at the air show is made easier because Alabama has a great product to offer,” she told the group. “Along with our business-friendly climate, we have an unmatched workforce. I am confident our hardworking men and women will set the tone for aerospace around the globe.
“The ideal location for new investment and jobs is Sweet Home Alabama.”
