ACI Asia-Pacific has signed a Memorandum of
Understanding with the China Civil Airports Association (CCAA) to
strengthen cooperation between the two airport associations.
MOU aims to drive exchange of knowledge and expertise by
introducing and promoting ACI programs to members of CCAA.
Mrs. Patti Chau,
Regional Director of ACI Asia-Pacific, said, “The MOU will further strengthen the already
strong ties between our relationships with CCAA and will serve as
a stepping stone to further promote ACI programs to the airports
in China. We believe the agreement will allow both associations to
pursue our mutual goals of achieving airport excellence for our
members in the region. We look forward to sharing the fruitful
results achieved under this agreement in the near future.”
associations agreed to enhance collaboration in the following
Training – ACI will provide training courses
to members of CCAA.
Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme
– CCAA will promote the programme to raise environmental awareness
APEX in Safety Programme – CCAA
will promote the programme to enhance safety standards.
Economic Data Exchange – Both associations will exchange economic
reports and other statistical data.
Ms. Li Xiaomei, Deputy Secretary General of CCAA said,
“CCAA greatly values this cooperation with ACI Asia-Pacific as it
will enhance exchange between the two organizations and will
facilitate further development on information exchange and
promotion on airport excellence projects. Our members will benefit
from this platform through the exchange of knowledge and expertise
and creating new opportunities. In 2014, passenger throughout and
cargo tonnage of airports in China account for one-third of the
total Asia-Pacific traffic (including the Middle East region). Our
committees and members will be advancing progressively through
active participation in the international airport industry
exchange and we will reveal our enormous potential to the world.
At the same time, we will be providing more training opportunities
for our members and access to new concepts and technology in the
areas of safety, infrastructure, operations, services,
environmental protection through this Cooperation. We believe that
working together with our international industry peers will help
bring the Chinese airport industry to a new height.”
