increasing demand in the Greater China region."
The company has hired additional staff and
moved into larger offices in Wanchai in a response to growing
demand for their services and to facilitate the expansion.
"TAG Aviation Asia's business plan for Hong Kong
is long-term. We have significantly invested in our people and
infrastructure locally. This city is the ideal starting point for
our strategic expansion in Asia and as we continue to grow in the
future, Hong Kong will remain our regional headquarters," added

city is an illustration of the opportunities in, and strong
support of, Hong Kong's aviation industry."
