“The aerospace and defense industry is uniquely positioned to help strengthen national defense and economic security through the shared development of technologies,” Hewson said. “I look forward to returning to Abu Dhabi to once again attend the Global Aerospace Summit to discuss how Lockheed Martin is partnering with the UAE to expand its economy, create high-tech jobs, and promote opportunities in science and technology that will support long-term peace and prosperity.”

Oisin Commane, Managing Director of SMG Aerospace, which is organising the Global Aerospace Summit, said: “We are delighted to welcome Marillyn Hewson once again in Abu Dhabi for the Summit. She brings a wealth of experience and insight on the aerospace and defence industries that can help inspire a new wave of collaborations across the globe.”
