In the spirit of expanding cooperation between Singapore and French aerospace industries, the Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore) or AAIS, has concluded Memoranda of Cooperation with three aerospace industry clusters in France. The three clusters – namely, Aerospace Valley, ASTech Paris Region and SAFE Cluster, collectively represent more than 1,500 members.

The signing ceremony was held on the sidelines of the International Paris Air Show on 21 Jun 2019, and hosted by the French Aerospace Industries Association – GIFAS (Groupement des Industries Françaises Aéronautiques et Spatiales).

Mr K.Y. Sia, Chief Executive of AAIS said, “The French aerospace industry is one of the world’s largest, and most established. It is an important gateway to the European market. Having enjoyed a strong partnership with GIFAS, we are now taking the next step to reach out to the three largest French regional clusters. We hope our SMEs will embrace the many opportunities for cross-border collaboration and market access, especially with the benefits of the European Union-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA).”
