AAIS was pleased to welcome Deputy Chairman of the Singapore-Russia Business Council (RSBC), Dr Sergey Pronin, to the Seletar Aerospace Park on 22 February 2017. He was accompanied by officials from the Russian Federation in the Republic of Singapore, including Trade Representative, Mr Alexey Dakhnovskiy and Counsellor, Mr Maxim Ovcharov, as well as Mr Kirill Solntsev, from the RSTradehaus. The group was welcomed by AAIS Honorary Secretary Ms Lim Hee Joo and AAIS Honorary Treasurer Mr Chow Kok Wah, along with Mr Richard Gibbons of Aircraft Support Industries.

The visit by the RSBC representatives to SAP was part of a larger business mission to Singapore, India and Malaysia arranged by RSBC for Russian aviation companies. These included aerospace equipment manufacturers, technology solution providers and companies offering airport support services, among others. During the visit, the parties discussed the state of the aerospace industries in Asia Pacific and Europe and exchanged best practices on promoting the development of the aerospace industry. Dr Pronin also took the opportunity to demonstrate the RSTrade platform – a portal recently developed by RSTradehouse, a subsidiary of RSBC – which provides information about goods and services supplied by Russian companies. The multi-language platform is intended to promote Russian industrial goods and non-raw materials for civil use in Southeast Asia, India and Australia.
