Rafale fighter aircraft to show off technical capabilities at Lima
Posted on March 26, 2013, Tuesday
LANGKAWI: Rafale International, which is set to woo visitors with its jaw-dropping aerial maneouvres at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2013 (Lima 2013), hopes to showcase its technical capabilities, innovative development and meet like-minded experts.
The fighter aircraft company said Lima was a good platform for Rafale which anticipated to receive quality trade visitors during the five-day exhibition which begins tomorrow.
“We believe it will be a successful exhibition for Rafale at Lima 2013,” it said in a statement.
The company, a joint-venture of companies comprising aerospace leaders Dassault Aviation, Snecma (Safran Group) and Thales, has been in active collaboration with Malaysian partners.
In line with its goal to create the Rafale Network of Excellence in Malaysia, several agreements and memorandum of understandings have been inked with local industry players, organisations and institutions.
Rafale does not only produce critical technologies but also invests into human capital development in high-value industries and remained committed to the local market by supporting the development, especially, of small-and-medium entrepreneurs through technology transfer.
The company had earlier said it had developed a commercial and industry programme for interested local firms that would become part of its supply chain, involving jet component production and application.
Rafale hoped the initiative would contribute significantly to Malaysia’s economy in becoming a high-income nation.
Lima is open to trade visitors from March 26 until March 30 and the public are welcome to visit the exhibition between March 29 and March 30. — Bernama
