Last week we were invited down to the Japanese embassy regarding the revitalisation of the aerospace industry after completing work in the region. James Bird and Andy Fitzpatrick attended the event along with Ambassador Hayashi and a large number of Japanese and British government officials, aircraft manufacturing and industry officials participated in the exchange of opinions and business matching between the Japanese and British aircraft manufacturing industry, , including Japanese Parliament Members Mr Taku Otsuka and Mr Hiroyuki Miyazawa, and Mr Jeremy Quin, Minister for Defence Procurement.
Ambassador Hayashi said that supply chains in the aircraft manufacturing industry need to be strengthened and transformed, given the changes in the global security environment, global environmental problems, and the progress of digitalization. Ambassador Hayashi anticipates that strengthening relations between Japan and the UK will contribute to the further advancement of the aircraft manufacturing industry, for example, through cooperation in fighter aircraft development.
