Canadian Aerospace Industries Association

The delegation met with the president and two vice-presidents of the Canadian Aerospace Industries Association (CAIS). The Canadian aerospace industry is primarily a supplier industry for U.S. companies.

The CAIS executives believe that U.S. export controls are more liberal than Canadian controls. They noted, however, that the United States has major problems in the areas of commodity jurisdiction and distinguishing between technical facts and policy factors. They also believe that more attention should be focused on the loss of technologies through joint manufacturing ventures and foreign ownership of local companies.
