The Loire Valley booth inaugurated at the Le Bourget Trade Fair

Aeronautics and defence

On Tuesday 16 June, cooperation between the Centre-Loire Valley and Pays de Loire Regions in the aeronautics sector led to an official inauguration at the Le Bourget Trade Fair, attended by local government officials, company representatives and regional economic actors. An opportunity to praise the two regions’ aeronautic dynamism and complementarity.

In order to consolidate their positioning in the aeronautics sector, the Centre-Loire Valley and Pays de la Loire Regions joined forces to set up a shared exhibition booth at the 2015 Le Bourget Trade Fair.
During the inauguration ceremony on 16 June, the Regions’ two Presidents, François Bonneau for Centre-Loire Valley and Jacques Auxiette for Pays de la Loire, paid particular tribute to this “Loire Valley” cooperation initiative and resulting search for synergies between the two territories. On the same occasion, Charles Champion, President of Airbus Operations, also emphasised the industrial know-how available in the Loire Valley and expressed his readiness to lend support to training and employment.

An opportunity for the 59 Centre-Loire Valley Region companies exhibiting at SIAE 2015 to exchange views and viewpoints.

Following Garnier-Durand’s example, regional professionals had a chance to present their activities.

The precision mechanical engineering company Agorameca, exhibited its 50-kg “Lawyer Playmobil” – created, naturally enough, for a law firm. Know-how that didn’t go unnoticed!
