Oklahoma officials to visit Paris Air Show

Oklahoma government officials and business leaders will represent the state overseas next week at the Paris Air Show, where they are expected to meet with executives from the aerospace industry.

Gov. Kevin Stitt will lead the delegation. On Friday, Stitt said the Oklahoma Department of Commerce previously has helped with business announcements totaling more than 7,000 new jobs and $700 million in capital development for the aerospace and defense industries.

“These international air shows are the only place where I can meet with the CEOs of all major US and foreign aerospace companies in one place, over three days,” Stitt said. “I am looking forward to taking Oklahoma to the world at the Paris Air Show and letting global aerospace leaders know that our state is open for business.”

He will be joined by U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, Commerce Department Executive Director Brent Kisling and cabinet secretaries Sean Kouplen and Kayse Shrum.
