S. and Thai­land/ ASEAN aero­space reg­u­la­tions, and in­creas­ing mem­ber com­pa­nies’ abil­ity to com­pete for global busi­ness.

2016 AC­COM­PLISH­MENTS

2016 was the first full year of ac­tiv­i­ties for the Aero­space Com­mit­tee with 10 monthly meet­ings held through­out the year. Much of the fo­cus in the first year has been on un­der­stand­ing the var­i­ous Thai gov­ern­ment pro­grams re­cently put in place to pro­mote Maintenance, Re­pair and Over­haul ( MRO) aero­space busi­ness. Some of the no­table speak­ers in­cluded Deputy Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Ajarin Pat­tana­pan­chai from the Thai­land Board of In­vest­ment, Rear Ad­mi­ral Wo­rapol Tong­pricha, Airport Di­rec­tor of the U- Ta­pao In­ter­na­tional Airport, and Ja­cob Siefers, the Re­gional Di­rec­tor for Siko­rsky In­ter­na­tional prod­ucts.

Through­out the year the com­mit­tee iden­ti­fied ar­eas that need em­pha­sis in pro­mot­ing the aero­space in­dus­try in Thai­land and has worked to get those is­sues into the proper gov­ern­ment chan- nels in both Thai­land and the United States.
