Upcoming Event: National Aerospace FDI Expo
October 26 – 28, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA

Co-hosted by the Aerospace States Association (ASA) and the U.S. Department of Commerce

The National Aerospace Foreign Direct Investors Exposition will be designed to “facilitate business.” This FDI event is not a conference, or a trade show, but a business event. The Expo will showcase states’ prowess in aviation and aerospace as well as their opportunities for investors. Many of the major aerospace companies from around the world have presence in the United States. The Lieutenant Governors of the states and territories are dedicated to providing the best possible business environment for U.S. and international based aerospace firms. The United States open markets and investment climate is the strongest in the world.

Who Should Attend?

Primary attendees at this Exposition will be states (and their economic development organizations), firms seeking foreign investment, and foreign investors. Significant on-site presence of U.S. aerospace companies and international OEMs is expected, as are their supply chain members; these coupled with strong support of investors and state and local governments help ensure a vibrant global aerospace industry. Other attendees will include service providers (consultants, legal firms, logistics services, site selection, etc.) - firms and organizations that support investments. Also present at the Expo will be government officials and top educational institutions. The Expo is an extraordinary opportunity for all to build relationships to take advantage of a growing worldwide aerospace economy. With the United States being seen as the No. 1 investment destination in the world, the Expo a unique gathering for exceptional business opportunities.

What is ServiceSolutionsUSA?

The U.S. Department of Commerce developed the ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory in order to help American companies connect with strategic organizations in other nations to ensure successful business ventures.

Through Commercial Service Bangkok’s ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory, U.S. companies can connect with Thai businesses in order to find the partner organizations they need to provide services, assist in investing, or help with exporting. Likewise, Thai companies can also utilize this partnership to boost their business activities in the U.S.

Why is this service beneficial for U.S. and Thai companies?

Ever since the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between the United States and Thailand in 1883, we have seen substantial commercial growth in both nations. As cross-investment continues to flourish in both economies, it is important to develop strong partnerships across many functions of businesses to ensure success. Just as American organizations need Thai partners to guide them through new ventures in the Thai economy, there is a growing need for U.S. accounting and legal executives to assist Thai companies as they continue to enter the American economy. Joining the ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory will enable organizations from both nations to interact with one another, strengthening their networks and building the framework for a stronger performance across both countries.
