Alabama team plans productive Day 2 at Farnborough Airshow

FARNBOROUGH, England — Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield and the Alabama economic development team begin a second day of appointments at the 2022 Farnborough International Airshow amid plenty of competition for new aerospace industry investment and jobs.

Secretary Canfield and Bob Smith, the Alabama Department of Commerce’s point man on aerospace, engaged in a full day of scheduled meetings Monday at the trade show, which attracts high-level industry decision-makers and government leaders from around the globe.

“We had a very successful day speaking to companies that have an established presence in Alabama, and we uncovered a couple of potential opportunities that could play out in the longer term,” Secretary Canfield said.

“In addition, it’s always special when you encounter a surprise in a meeting that could end up being a very positive development.”
