Dutch confirm pavilion for Dubai Air show
The Netherlands Aerospace Group (NAG), the industry association comprising 90 percent of all aerospace companies and institutes in Holland, has confirmed it will mount a government-backed pavilion at this year’s Dubai air show.
“The Holland pavilion at Dubai 2003 is being supported by the Dutch Foreign Trade Agency as NAG and its members perceive the Middle East as a prime growth market where many members have established solid footholds,” explained Frank Jansen, NAG’s managing director.
Dutch industry leaders already confirmed for the pavilion include Akzo Nobel Aerospace Coatings, which makes paints and coatings for the aerospace industry, KLM Engineering & Maintenance, Belgraver Aircraft Interiors and Avio-Diepen, which provides stock management and spare parts distribution of components to airlines, original equipment manufacturers and maintenance, repair and overhaul customers.
“In all, we anticipate 10 Dutch companies spanning a wide range of products and services being housed in the pavilion,” said Jansen.
Groups from 11 countries, including for the first time Jordan and the Ukraine, have confirmed participation at Dubai 2003, which will be held at the Airport Expo Dubai from December 7-11 this year. Other confirmed groups include the UK, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, the USA, Canada, Sweden and Greece.
To date, exhibitors from 27 countries have contracted for Dubai 2003, which is receiving heightened international attention since the Le Bourget air show in Paris last month. Dubai 2003 is being organised by F&E in conjunction with the Department of Civil Aviation, Government of Dubai and in collaboration with the UAE Armed Forces. — (menareport.com)
