TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, in conjunction with Enterprise Florida, led a mission to the United Kingdom to promote opportunities for collaboration between Florida and the aerospace and aviation industry.
Nuñez visited the Farnborough International Airshow that took place from July 16th to July 20th. Nuñez said the state’s presence at the airshow “cemented Florida’s brand as the premier location” for aviation and aerospace.
“I am proud of our delegation consisting of 20 Florida manufacturing companies and partners, as we were one of the largest American state pavilions at the show,” Nuñez said.
There are about 106,000 Floridians employed across nearly 2,500 aviation and aerospace establishments.
“As Chair of the Board of Space Florida, I continue to look forward to supporting the growth in our flourishing Space Industry. Private sector investment in the area and the rise of reusable rockets now give Florida a competitive advantage in developing our space value chain,” Nuñez said. “Florida represents the very best of America’s past, present and future as our economy continues to take flight.”
The lieutenant governor met with 12 aerospace companies to talk about growth and expansion.
The airshow serves as a way for many businesses looking to build, expand or relocate their operations to Florida.
