The Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore) (AAIS) and the Aviation Valley Association of Poland recently signed a Memorandum of Cooperation, signalling their intent to promote and facilitate more business activities and collaboration between aerospace companies in both countries.
The Memorandum was signed by Mr Allan Ferrie, 2nd Vice President for AAIS and Assembly and Test Director at Rolls Royce Singapore; and Mr Marek Bujny, Vice-President for the Aviation Valley Cluster and CEO of Ultratech. The signing ceremony was held in conjunction with the visit of the Aviation Valley cluster delegation to Seletar Aerospace Park on 3 March 2017.
The agreement covers cooperation in key areas including information exchanges on aerospace businesses and capabilities in Singapore and Poland, facilitation of industry study visits and business connections, as well as mutual invitations to industry events. It is hoped that the MOC would facilitate AAIS members such ACP Metal Finishing, which has plans to expand its business into Poland.
During the meeting, both parties affirmed their desire and commitment to explore potential business opportunities and collaborative activities. The MOC signing was witnessed by JTC Deputy Director for Aerospace, Mr Edwin Ho and the Polish Embassy Deputy Head of Mission, Mr Jan Wojick, and other members present.
President Tony Tan will be making a State Visit to Poland from 22 to 26 May 2017. Aerospace companies interested to join the visit as part of a business delegation are welcomed to contact the AAIS Secretariat.
