The aerospace industry in South East Asia - Australia's experience in accessing complex value chains
Mr. Joel Backwell, Australian, Trade Commissioner, Australian Trade Commission (Austrade)
Australian companies have significant expertise in advanced manufacturing, composite materials, research and development, radar technology, pilot and aerospace engineer training and MRO capabilities. Our aerospace industry has also operated for a long time in a cost constrained, challenging and competitive environment. Therefore we are well placed to work with other aerospace companies in the Asian region to share our expertise and find ways to jointly access complex value chains and leverage the growing opportunities of an increasingly wealthy and increasingly mobile regional population. Through my presentation I will be sharing these Australian experiences and outlining areas of potential collaboration with key players in the aerospace industry in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the rest of South East Asia.
