Idaho Aerospace Alliance to Sign Memorandum of Understanding with Taichung City Government, Taiwan

WHAT:  The Idaho Aerospace Alliance (IDA) is continuing its efforts for education, expansion, and recognition both nationally and internationally. On the tailcoat of signing a letter of intent with the HEGAN Basque aerospace cluster, the IDA prepares to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Economic Development Bureau of the Taichung City Government, Taiwan.


Taiwan’s aviation industry has grown nearly 200% in the last decade and this MOU presents a great opportunity for the members of the Idaho Aerospace Alliance. Cooperation between the two groups presents prospects for international collaboration, research & development, and market expansion that can benefit both economies.
