Minister for Trade and Investment’s visit to Singapore

The Hon Minister Andrew Robb AO MP, Minister for Trade and Investment, led a delegation of 15 aerospace executives on a high-level business mission to Singapore.

The aims of the mission were to promote Australian aerospace capabilities to the industry in Singapore, and to raise awareness within the Australian industry of the growth of the sector in Asia-Pacific.

The programme included an industry roundtable involving 19 Singapore-based CEO-level executives from major aerospace organisations before a series of meetings and site visits with Singapore’s major aerospace organisations - Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney, SIA Engineering, Hawker Pacific and the industry regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

The week was capped off with a signing ceremony between CSIRO and the Singapore Institute for Manufacturing Technology for titanium 3D printing technology, witnessed by Minister Robb and his Singapore counterpart.
