Sweden is to mount its first Dubai Air Show pavilion at Dubai 2001 which is taking place this November
The Swedish Civil Aviation Group (SCAG), a government-sponsored umbrella organisation is to front its first official pavilion at the Dubai 2001 aerospace exhibition in November. The aim of SCAG presence is to create new contacts and build awareness of Sweden as a civil aviation player.
“Swedish civil aviation skills and supply capability are highly rated worldwide,” said Per Olof Lansing, SCAG chairman. “Considerable experience was gained during the comprehensive expansion of Swedish civil aviation and corresponding new airport facilities aimed at providing competitive and efficient air transport systems.”
“It is always gratifying to hear of new business wins for the Dubai air show and the expansion of its geographical exhibitor footprint,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of Department of Civil Aviation, government of Dubai. “New exhibitors mean there will be more emerging technology on show which will be required by civil aviation authorities throughout the region as the aerospace infrastructure continues to expand,” he added.
Sweden joins a growing number of countries which have committed to national pavilions for Dubai 2001.
