Jenny Lau, Chairperson, AsBAA said, “AsBAA has become the go-to association in the region to advocate the importance of business and general aviation to our economies and communities. This partnership highlights our continued efforts on behalf of our members to forge strategic partnerships with credible global entities. We’re delighted to be working more closely with the Royal Aeronautical Society to jointly promote business and general aviation in Asia”.
Tim Wood, Corporate Business Development Executive has said of the new partnership, “Business and general aviation is a priority at the Society. We have the support of the associations within the IBAC community: BACA, BBGA, EBAA and NBAA. The recent move to partner with AsBAA underlines our commitment to also including Asia in the Society’s global activity. Asia plays a key role in our aerospace and aviation community and we are committed to supporting AsBAA to help the industry thrive. AsBAA’s regional reach gives it particular influence; creating links between mainland China, Hong Kong Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and other key Asian markets”.
Wood went on to comment, “The benefit of the Society is that we can pull together the industry with a global agenda and find common ground and tackle issues affecting all of industry, not just in a regionalised context. For this model to work, we seek the support of IBAC member associations such as AsBAA to ensure global cooperation and expertise at a regional level, brought together under a common platform for industry to move forward with one voice”.
