SINGAPORE has signed two agreements that will focus on leadership and research respectively in its efforts to help advance international civil aviation.

The agreements were inked at the opening session of the World Civil Aviation Chief Executives Forum (WCACEF) held at the Singapore Aviation Academy.

Firstly, Singapore has agreed to tie up with the International Civil Aviation Organization to jointly develop and conduct a two-day executive programme on aviation security for directors-general of civil aviation. Seven runs of the programme will be carried out at global locations between 2018 and 2020.

In addition, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on research collaboration has been signed between the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

The MOU provides the framework to jointly collaborate on areas such as research, innovation and talent.
