Des ministres canadiens sur les relations avec le voisin :
et un autre article, du même journal, écrit juste après les acoords
Avec la citation intéressante de R.Aboulafia :
"...According to Aboulafia, Boeing’s trade complaint against Bombardier was specifically couched to win support from the protectionist wing of the Republican Party. Unfortunately for Boeing, “The epicenter of that wing is in Alabama, which loves factory jobs [his emphasis], even from foreign companies,” he wrote in a Teal Group newsletter written after the Airbus/Bombardier deal was announced.
With the C Series now set to bring new jobs to the protectionist wing’s heartland, Aboulafia expects “that Commerce will rule that it has no authority on jetliners exported from Alabama to Georgia [where Delta Air Lines is based], and that will be that,” he said."
et Enders, et les canadiens-quebecois :
"... Enders emphasized how important Airbus could be to the Canadian aerospace industry once the CSALP deal is finalized.
“Beyond the C Series, Canadian aerospace suppliers will have great access to the Airbus global supply chain–one worth $82 billion in contracts annually, extending across all of Airbus’ business lines and products, in both civil and military aviation,” he said in the open letter.
With promises like this, Aero Montreal president Suzanne Benoit is understandably happy about the Airbus/Bombardier CSALP deal. (Aero Montreal is a strategic think tank that brings together all the major decision-makers in Quebec’s aerospace sector.)
“I think it’s great news for our industry, because Airbus is a global player,” said Benoit. “This will bring more opportunities to our supply chain. This is very good news, in that sense.”
From Aero Montreal’s perspective, Airbus’ arrival comes at a time when the Canadian aerospace sector has already become diverse, cutting-edge and world-class. This means that Airbus will have access to a range of Canadian aerospace talent when it is time to launch new projects.
“This is all good news for us, to have such a key player come in to develop our aerospace industry here in Canada,” Benoit said."
et la conclusion, que je partage :
"At Bombardier itself, people are justifiably proud of what they’ve built, the storms they’ve weathered and how well they have played their hand.
“We have developed a product that is being recognized widely in the industry as being the most innovative in its class,” said Siphengphet.
“There is so much heart and soul in this aircraft program, and we believe that Airbus is the perfect partner to ensure that it has access to all key markets globally because their global scale, strong customer relationships and operational expertise are key ingredients for unleashing the full value of the C Series.”
