Gov. Ivey to lead Alabama team on European business mission

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey and Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield are traveling to next week’s 2019 Paris Air Show for scheduled meetings with high-ranking aerospace industry executives and to Germany for discussions with the leadership of Mercedes-Benz.

In Paris, Governor Ivey will lead a delegation of Alabama economic development specialists, elected officials, university representatives and others attending the year’s premier global aerospace industry event.

The mission begins Sunday with networking events connecting the Alabama team with industry officials. On Monday, Governor Ivey, Secretary Canfield and a small Alabama working team will engage in pre-arranged meetings with executives from aerospace companies such as Raytheon, Blue Origin and the United Launch Alliance.

“Alabama has long been a leading state for aerospace, and we have set a strategic goal of growing our base in this important industry,” Governor Ivey said.
