Commerce Sec. Canfield to lead Alabama mission to 2023 Paris Air Show

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield is leading a group of economic development specialists from across Alabama at next week’s 2023 Paris Air Show as part of a strategic effort to accelerate growth in the state’s important aerospace and defense sector.

Secretary Canfield said the Paris Air Show represents a prime opportunity for the Alabama team to engage in scheduled appointments and informal talks with key industry decision-makers over several days.

“At this event in Paris, we can showcase Alabama’s impressive advantages and capabilities in the aerospace sector while positioning the state for significant new investment and job creation,” he said.

“Our team can renew relationships and connect with companies from around the world at a single location, without having to travel all over the globe for talks.”
