Trade Commissioner Service wins key aerospace honour
The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) has been awarded the James C. Floyd Award by the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) for their important contributions to the promotion of Canadian aerospace interests in the global marketplace.
“The Trade Commissioner Service has proven to be a vital partner to the Canadian aerospace industry, helping companies to make the connections that they need to gain access to and do business in markets around the world,” said Jim Quick, president and CEO of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada. “Through their active participation in domestic and international trade shows, their support in coordinating aerospace industry trade missions for companies and industry delegations, and their partnership through initiatives such as embedding a Trade Commissioner in AIAC’s offices, the TCS has directly and significantly supported the growth of Canadian aerospace both at home and around the world.”
This is the first time that the Award, which recognizes exceptional contributions to the Canadian aerospace industry, has been given to a government entity. The Trade Commissioner Service is an arm of Global Affairs Canada (GAC). Susan Bincoletto, Chief Trade Commissioner and Assistant Deputy Minister, International Business Development, Investment and Innovation, accepted the award on behalf of the TCS at a ceremony held during the Annual Aerospace Dinner and Canadian Aerospace Summit on November 17, 2015.
