We launch a new digital edition of the Aerópolis newsletter, very proud of collecting successful news of our companies, showing once again the good health of the aerospace industry in Andalusia and its good growth prospects for the future. The companies and institutions who work in our Park are the true heart of Aerópolis, the reason why it was created and promoted this complex of business and technological excellence: available sites, infrastructure, services and activities to support the aviation industry to promote its development and international growth.
Among these latest achievements and milestones there are new contracts awarded to companies Aernnova and AERTEC Solutions, in the first case to expand its participation in the programmes of one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, the Brazilian Embraer; and secondly, to take part in the design of an international airport, particularly in Latin America. It also highlights the launching by the Andalusian Tier 1 Alestis Aerospace of a strategic plan to improve its industrial facilities, in order to increase productivity and competitiveness, to be ready for the new challenges of the future.
Moreover, we received the visit of the Secretary of State for Defense of Portugal, Ms. Berta Cabral, and a delegation of companies in the aerospace and defense sector to know first-hand the activity of the Andalusian industry, our companies and infrastructure, as well as to strengthen institutional ties with the regional government and the leading industry in Andalusia, such as Hélice Cluster.
From all this we are extremely proud, as the rest of news from other companies in the Park that we echo periodically in this newsletter or that we know through other media. Because the success of our companies is the success of Aerópolis. A Science and Technology Park that has become a reference in aerospace in Spain and Europe through the development and growth of its companies, its commitment to innovation, technology and business collaboration, and diversification of its activities and customers.
One of the objectives of Aerópolis is to promote and give value to our companies because we are convinced there is no better marketing tool or dissemination for businesses that the facts themselves: the good work carried out by each one in its area or specific subsector, and the capacity, experience and know-how have enabled placing the Andalusian sector as third European aerospace focus and one of the fastest growing in the last decade.
