The Assembly also provided an excellent opportunity for attendees to network. and discover how each organisation can influence the Standards through voluntary participation in the APAQG activities.

Mr Hiroyuki Jikei, APAQG Sector Lead and his team of APAQG representatives presented about “The Next Revision of 9100” and “MRO Relationship Growth Strategy”. Mr Tan Kah Han, Director Airworthiness & Flight Operations Division, CAAS delivered the Keynote Address.
