Government, furthermore, must foster improved math and science curricula across the education system. * Provide tax incentives to stimulate industry investment in worker education and develop and attract highly skilled employees where shortages exist. * Initiate a joint government-industry strategic communication campaign to promote careers in the industry by improving the perception of aerospace employment opportunities and rewards to high school students. * Develop competitive employee compensation packages comparable to other high technology sectors to recruit and retain engineers, professionals and workers. * Find ways to streamline the export control process and add predictability and transparency. * Reevaluate the rationale behind export controls and protectionist measures. Specifically, International Trade in Arms Regulation export control lists should be evaluated to ensure only the critical, strategic articles and services are induded. * Continue NASA's historical role of supporting breakthrough research that has a longer time horizon than industry can support - 10 years or more - before it is mature enough to be considered for transition to product development. * Ensure that federal agencies should act on recommendations in the 2003 President's Commission on the Future of the U.S. Aerospace Industry, which proposed significant increases to federal government investment in basic aerospace research. * Continue to encourage U.S. industrial investment via increases in tax credits, with greater credit provided to long term efforts.
