Another part of GIFAS’ role consists of defending its members’ common interests. We study each measure that could impact our industry and we advocate for our members in negotiations.
Whether the subject on the table is R&D, public procurement, environment, certification or taxation, we strive to help our sector evolve and compete at the highest possible levels. To do so, we make a point of working alongside public authorities within our different strategies for development.
In this way, the French national and regional authorities become stakeholders in our progress. Our collaboration benefits all parties. This type of partnership allows us, for example, to better meet the needs of our customers, whether civilian or military.
Additionally, we make sure that our industry remains a prominent player in European space projects. GIFAS thus facilitates national and European decision-makers’ involvement in the main components of an ambitious European space policy.
