EASA has opened a regional office in Singapore, its fourth such office after Washington DC (USA), Montreal (Canada) and Beijing (China). The office will have two permanent staff.
“We have cooperated with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore on concrete aviation projects since 2012,” said Patrick Ky, executive director of EASA. “We now go a step further. The opening of EASA’s regional office in Singapore underlines the importance of Singapore and the entire ASEAN region as a strong partner for EASA and for the European aviation industry as a whole.”
“I am very pleased to see that on the day we launch the first ever EU-ASEAN Transport Dialogue, we also open the EASA office in Singapore to work with the whole ASEAN block,” said Henrik Hololei, director general for mobility and transport at the European Commission.
“This is a clear sign of our commitment to the region and further deepens our very good and close cooperation. No doubt this will further strengthen our well-established relations with our Singaporean partners and friends.
“It is also a recognition of the strategic importance of Singapore and our special bilateral relations. We have had shared successes in the past, and I look forward to much more shared success in the future.”
