Arizona is a top-ranked Aerospace Industry state (#6 for DOD funding), contributing over $15 billion to the state's economy every year. With the Sequester, defense industry changes and global supply chain shifts, what can we expect to happen next?

We are honored to have three experts on the Aerospace Industry - Defense and Civil - to discuss the new GPEC study, the Sequester and global developments that will be impacting everyone involved with the segment - directly or indirectly.

Who should attend: Arizona business leaders looking for more international success including education and connections. 

Welcome internationalists!

World Arizona

World Arizona is an unusual by-invitation-only, after-work event organized by Arizona International Growth Group (AZIGG) to highlight Arizona's need to do a better job with global business. Yes, we can!

Two effective leaders who understand the need are U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon and Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane. On March 28th we'll be discussing how to energize more leaders like them to help with international economic development, investment and creation of more jobs.

Our regrets to anyone who is not a board member of the various groups like PCFR and AZCIV that are involved with the event, or an AZIGG sponsor. Because of limited space in the venue, we must limit attendance somehow. We encourage you to attend the April 1st AZIGG event and hear a recap.
