IATA to grow presence in Singapore

International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Government of Singapore signed (10-Feb-2011) a memorandum of understanding to facilitate the further growth and development of IATA’s Regional Office for Asia Pacific, which employs 80 staff in Singapore. IATA has also established the Sir William Hildred and Guenter Eser Aviation Scholarships in cooperation with Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The scholarships will sponsor up to 12 individuals attending the newly developed Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) in aviation management at NTU, due to launch in 2012. The announcements come as 35 global strategic thinkers associated with the air transport industry gather in Singapore for IATA’s Vision 2050 initiative on 11-Feb-2011 and 12-Feb-2011. The Vision 2050 results will be reported to IATA’s next AGM in Jun-2011. [more] [more - Giovanni Bisignani's remarks]
