The Port of Los Angeles and LARExC host Dubai trade briefing, March 2017
The Los Angeles Regional Export Council (LARExC), in partnership with the U.S. Commercial service in Los Angeles, organized the first-ever California Pavilion at the Australian International Airshow.
Seven small-to-medium-sized aerospace and defense companies exhibited in the pavilion. The photo above includes company representatives and U.S. Embassy staff. Civilian aircraft, engines and parts are the largest export from the L.A. Customs District and are shipped as both air and sea cargo; this export increased 24 percent in 2016 to $7.3 billion.
