With Asia playing an ever more important role in the world economy, it continues to witness unprecedented economic growth. And the people of Asia, who are active partners in this growth, are seeing how business aviation benefits the United States, Europe and other parts of the world. And they recognize that the need for business aviation in Asia is great.
Business leaders, government officials and consumers know that they can meet the demands associated with such historic growth more effectively through the use of business aircraft. And, as a result, Asia continues to open its doors to business aviation. And, ABACE is where business aviation’s top vendors, industry leaders and experts from around the world come together with the emerging Asian market that is eager for information and products that can assist them as they continue to grow into a strong economic leader.
