Lockheed Martin chairman, president, and chief executive officer Marillyn Hewson will speak at the Global Aerospace Summit 2018 on how the aerospace and defence industry serves as a catalyst for global security, international cooperation, and economic growth.

Hewson will highlight some of Lockheed Martin’s strategic partnerships to grow the UAE’s domestic manufacturing capacity and equip young people with the skills needed to compete in the 21st century.

“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.”

The 2018 edition will take place on 30th April to 1st May at the St. Regis hotel on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.
