The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) have signed an agreement which will facilitate mutual cooperation in civil aviation between the two organisations. The memorandum of cooperation (MoC) was signed by Lim Kim Choon, director-general and chief executive officer, CAAS, and Dr K. Ramalingam, chairman, AAI.
This collaborative arrangement will allow CAAS and AAI to tap each other's experience in airport operations and learn from each other's best practices.
The agreement will allow both organisations to share knowledge in areas of airport management and operations, and also to exchange information on civil aviation programmes and projects.
The agreement will also pave the way for coordination in training, research and development programmes.
According to CAAS's Lim, ''This agreement is another step forward in the close relationship between CAAS and AAI. With strong growth in the Indian aviation market and increasing air links between our two countries, this agreement will enable CAAS and AAI to actively engage one another in joint discussions and learn from each other's areas of expertise. We look forward to a dynamic collaboration with AAI.''
