On the Agenda

Mr. Chun will provide an update on work related to the Aerospace and Defense/Manufacturing industries and highlight the programs and tools available to local businesses.

Recently, Mayor Garcetti launched the new Export Program, an initiative that assists local businesses to access international trade opportunities and prepare their businesses to export products abroad. The program is designed to guide local manufacturers through the complex export readiness process, help them address key challenges and connect them with a variety of training and counseling services available through city, state and federal partners.

The Purpose of The Aerospace & Defense Forum

The purpose of The Aerospace & Defense Forum is to promote communication, collaboration, and commerce among A&D industry leaders. The focus is on the business, rather than the technology, of the A&D industry.

The Vision of The Aerospace & Defense Forum

The vision is a world where A&D Industry Leaders fully realize the professional, commercial, and social benefits from effective community engagement.

The Mission of The Aerospace & Defense Forum

The A & D mission is to create and maintain a global aerospace and defense leadership community that provides opportunities for sharing of information, current events, and analysis, mutual support and encouragement, partnering, innovation, and performance breakthroughs.

We encourage everyone in the area to participate in the upcoming forum. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to join in on a great conversation. Register today!
