Brownback Upbeat About European Trade

KSCB News - July 18, 2012 4:22 pm

Gov. Sam Brownback is upbeat about the prospects for increased activity between European trade partners and Kansas, especially increased jobs in aviation and energy.

Brownback said Wednesday that orders for new commercial aircraft announced at the Farnborough International Airshow in England would be good for the aviation business in Kansas. He says supplies that make components for those commercial orders could see more than $5 billion in business.

The Republican governor attended the air show with other Kansas officials, as well as making calls on business leaders in Germany.

Brownback says officials with the Boeing Corp. believe the value of new commercial aircraft orders for Kansas suppliers will exceed the losses to the state economy caused by Boeing’s decision to close its defense facilities in Wichita.
