IATA: “The future for Vietnamese aviation is bright. By 2014, Vietnam is projected to be the world’s third fastest growing market for international passengers and freight, and the second fastest for domestic passengers. But it is a future that cannot be taken for granted. Vietnamese aviation must be built and supported by sound policies that take into account that this is a dynamic industry where change is the only constant,” Director General and CEO, Giovanni Bisignani.
